LEWIS COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — The TBI is investigating after a body was found burned in a wooded area of Lewis County on Sunday afternoon.

TBI special agents and fire investigators were brought in at the request of District Attorney General Kim Helper. They are working with the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office on the death investigation.
