The Warrick County Sheriff's Office says investigation has lead them to believe that foul play is involved in the death of a man found at Alcoa.

According to Sheriff Brett Kruse, the body of a man was found at the Warrick Alcoa Operations around 8:15 Monday morning. He says it was discovered by employees at the coal handling system.

Authorities tell us the man found dead is not an Alcoa worker. We're told authorities have identified the man, but will not be releasing the name until family has been notified.

14 News asked Sheriff Kruse if it could be the man who jumped from the Twin Bridges last weekend. He says authorities have no reason to believe so.

The sheriff says the man is about 30-years-old, around 5'9" tall and 160 to 170 pounds. Authorities say he has a tattoo of a dragon on his right upper arm and another tattoo on his left calf.

When found, he was wearing blue jeans, white shirt and a blue Nike hooded sweatshirt. He has dark hair worn in a crew cut fashion.

Deputies are asking anyone with information about his identity to please contact the Warrick County Sheriff's Office at 897-6180.

An autopsy was done Monday evening, but a cause of death has not been released.
