NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro Nashville Police detectives asked for the public's help in identifying a man found dead last week in a wooded area of South Nashville near the Metro Soccer Complex on Donelson Pike.

Anyone with information about the man or his identity was asked to call the Department of Emergency Communications at 615-862-8600.
