Dickson County sheriff

A man was found shot to death in a wooded area behind his Yellow Creek Road home, Dickson County sheriff’s Sgt. Randy Starkey said Friday afternoon.

Sheriff’s deputies found the body of 53-year-old Harvey D. Eaton Jr., Starkey said.

He said the victim’s wife reported the man missing after he didn’t show up for work.

The death is believed to have occurred Thursday. An autopsy was performed Friday, and the county medical examiner’s office had not released the results.

The investigation is continuing and no further details were available.
