SMYRNA, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the death of a Rutherford County man who was found inside of his car with a gunshot wound.

Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold said the body of 47-year-old Jackie G. Warpoole Jr. of Smyrna was discovered around 6:30 a.m. Sunday along Interstate 24 in Smyrna. A motorist had stopped to check on the parked car.

Arnold says there’s not a suspect or motive at this time, but that the case is being treated like a homicide.

Investigators are trying to locate the last people Warpoole spoke with Sunday.
