KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A woman from west Knoxville found a body under her deck while hunting for Easter eggs with her son Wednesday.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Tara Hanouskova smelled an odor that progressively got worse over the past week, but could never pinpoint the source.

On Wednesday, however, while hunting for Easter eggs with her three-year-old, she noticed something with a pair of feet clad in tennis shoes in the crawl space under her deck.

She explained that the odor wasn’t consistent nor strong; she only smelled it off and on until it got so bad she decided to peer under her deck to check it out.

“I really don’t even know how he got there,” Hanouskova said.

Authorities have yet to identify the man, whose fully clothed remains had been under the Hanouskova’s deck for at least two weeks.

An autopsy revealed Thursday that no foul play is suspected.  Authorities believe he suffered a medical condition that resulted in his death.
