Body found underneath dock in Franklin County


Investigators are working to determine the exact cause of death of an Alabama man whose body was found in Winchester, Tenn.

Police responded to the call on Thursday evening just before 7 p.m. when a woman reported 39-year-old William Nolan as missing.

The woman told police that Nolan, her son-in-law, was going swimming after he finished jogging. After an hour, the woman became concerned.

Investigators said the woman found Nolan's clothes on the dock but could not find him anywhere.

When authorities arrived, the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency and the Franklin County Rescue Squad located Nolan's body underneath the dock. His body was then transported to Harton Medical Center in Tullahoma where he was pronounced dead.

Law enforcement personnel did discover that the house in question had been struck by lightning in the recent past. An investigation did show faulty wiring from the house to the dock causing the area to be live with electricity.

Nolan's body was transported to Nashville for an ordered autopsy by the state medical examiner to determine the specific cause of death.
