KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (CNN) – Knoxville police are working to identify a dead body that was found under the deck of a West Knoxville home, during a child’s Easter egg hunt.

Police told CNN a woman found a dead body under her deck, while she was having an Easter egg hunt for her four-year-old son in the backyard.

The woman told police she had been hunting for the source of a foul odor for several days. She had looked around for what was causing it a few times, but did not see anything. In fact, earlier this week the owner had someone mow the grass and said be on the lookout for whatever might be causing the bad odor. The person who cut the lawn did not see anything either.

It’s a large deck and gets very narrow and dark up where it meets the house. The body was around 15 to 20 feet up from the edge of the deck, so it’s not something you can easily see.

Wednesday night at around 7:19, the owner noticed the smell again during an Easter egg hunt and finally discovered the body. Police say there were no signs the man had set up any kind of camp beneath the deck to use it as a shelter.

Medical examiners began an autopsy Thursday, and hope it will provide some clues to identify the victim, because right now they don’t have much to go on. Police say the dead body was beneath the deck for at least a week… Maybe even a couple of weeks.

The remains were decomposed so much that they couldn’t get fingerprints or tell much of anything about the person other than it was a man who had on all of his clothes.

Police say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but again, they’re waiting for the autopsy results to paint a better picture of what happened.
