The body of a man from Pontotoc was discovered in a region of Marshall County, which was in close proximity to where he abandoned his vehicle the previous week.
Last Thursday, Brian Dowdy reportedly crashed his truck on Wilkins Chapel Road, as confirmed by Marshall County Chief Deputy Kelly McMillin. Dowdy apparently veered off the road and became stuck.
According to reports, the individual in question called for a wrecker and communicated with deputies, assuring them that he had arranged for transportation and that there was no need for concern.
It seems that Dowdy did not receive a ride, as no ride arrived for him.
According to McMillin, law enforcement resorted to utilizing technology to determine the whereabouts of the man, in the event that he had strayed into the nearby woods. On Wednesday, a search operation was conducted in the area using drones, dogs, and a helicopter, but unfortunately, no success was reported.
A cadaver dog was brought to the 3000 block of Wilkins Chapel Road, where Dowdy was eventually found. The dog was able to locate Dowdy in approximately 30 minutes.
According to McMillin, there were no apparent indications of wrongdoing. However, Dowdy’s remains have been sent for autopsy.
