NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Franklin County Sheriff's Office said 26-year-old Corey Matthews, who they said was murdered and left in a cornfield over the weekend, died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.

Investigators found his body off Jackson Cemetery Road in the town of Cowan on Sunday.

Matthews was a volunteer firefighter for the Keith Springs Fire Department.

His co-workers said they are still trying to come to terms with his death.

"I think it's a shame, what has happened to him, he was really a good person, and I cannot understand why," said Mark Bassett with the Keith Springs Fire Department.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office is still looking for clues about Matthew's death. 

If you have any information that might help investigators, call deputies at 931-962-0123.
