Body found in car
A male body was found today in an overturned vehicle with bearing a Tennessee license plate. Found off Highway 51, it appeared that the vehicle had been there for a while. According to The Commercial Appeal, the body of a man was found just off Highway 51, in a ditch.
"It appeared that the individual driving the car was southbound on Highway 51, apparently at a high speed, lost control, went over the median and under the bridges,"
Millington Police Chief Ray Douglas said. WMVTV reports that traffic is flowing slowly in both directions on Highway 51 between Memphis and Millington as emergency crews secure the scene. According to WREG they say they were told it appeared that the car was involved in an accident. The body was discovered in a partially submerged car and may be a Porsche. Douglas said they did find identification on the body, but will not release that information because the next of kin hadn't yet been notified.
