KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) --A Tennessee woman says she made a grisly discovery while hunting for Easter eggs in her back yard with her 3-year-old son: a dead body.

Tara Hanouskova says she had noticed a foul smell but didn't find the source until Wednesday, when she noticed tennis shoes in the crawl space under her deck while hunting for eggs with her son.

She says her son didn't notice the man's body, and police investigated discreetly.

Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk told media outlets that the man had been dead about two weeks. The autopsy, however, did find that the man suffered from a medical condition that could have led to his death.

Meanwhile, police are still trying to determine who the man is and why he was under the deck.


Police say an autopsy has found no evidence of foul play in the death of a man whose body was found underneath a deck behind a Knoxville home.

Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk told the Knoxville News Sentinel in a statement that the man, who hasn't yet been identified, had been dead about two weeks. The autopsy, however, did find that the man suffered from a medical condition that could have led to his death.

DeBusk says the death will be listed as natural causes unless something different is found in the final autopsy report.

Meanwhile, police are still trying to determine why the man was under the deck.

The homeowner said she found the body Wednesday after noticing a foul smell.
