Missing Claiborne County Man Found Dead in Tazewell

The body of a man missing from Claiborne County is found.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says a resident found Aaron Massengill’s body late Monday afternoon along Ferguson Ridge Road in Tazewell.

TBI agents along with Claiborne County Sheriff’s Office and Tazewell Police Department say they don’t know how he died. His body will be sent for an autopsy to determine his cause of death.

Groups of family members and concerned neighbors searched for Massengill in wooded areas around the county for several days.
