A Hawkins County, Tennessee teenager reported missing Monday afternoon was found dead near his home, according to Sheriff Ronnie Lawson.
The body of Sean Maurice Howard was discovered by a family member in a pond located near the juvenile’s residence on LeLand Avenue in Rogersville, the sheriff said.
Lawson noted that foul play is not suspected in the child’s death. The body has been sent to ETSU’s Quillen College of Medicine for an autopsy.
