Body of Black Male Discovered in Maple Oak Apartments in Kingsport


Kingsport police released this statement on Saturday.  Right now, the name of the person has not been released until the next of kin is notified.  Your Douglass website editor does not spread rumor or speculation, so while a name is floating around the neighborhood, no name will be published until the police release identity.  Other details will follow.

On September 25, 2021 at approximately 10:30 AM, Kingsport Police Department Patrol Officers and Detectives were dispatched to an unattended death (a death that occurred outside of the confines of professional medical care) at Maple Oak Apartments, located at 818 Oak Street in Kingsport. 

Responding Officers located a deceased 64 year old black male adult inside an apartment.

The deceased individual has been sent to the E.T.S.U. James H. Quillen College of Medicine for autopsy. 

As with any unattended death, this incident will be thoroughly investigated to rule out any possibility of foul play.  That investigation is currently underway. 

As such, no additional information, to include the identity of the decedent, can or will be released at this time.
