NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A body was found in Sevenmile Creek on Nolensville Pike Tuesday.

The body was found by a fisherman just before 2 p.m. at the 4000 block of Nolensville Pike near the Harding Place Bridge.

The body was pinned against a tree and was mostly covered by brush, wood and other debris in the creek.

Metro Nashville Police officers and personnel from the Office of Emergency Management assisted in the recovery of the body from the water.

The cause of death is unclear, and no details were released about the person's identity. But police officials say the victim may have drowned in flooding last month.
