Update: Man’s Body Found in Lawrence County; Death Considered Suspicious

There is evidence that a man's body was dropped off at the location it was found on Monday, the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says.

Sheriff Garrett Roberts said Tuesday that there are shoe and tire tracks in the mud where the body of Brandon Burnett was found on a logging road off Cains Creek Road in Lawrence County. Roberts said that indicates the death is suspicious.

Burnett, 30, was from Carter County, Ky. There were no visible injuries on his body.

A driver with a gas and oil company found Burnett's body. Roberts said those drivers are the only people who regularly travel the dirt road.
