On Sunday, June 23, 2019, at approximately 9:44 a.m., Matthews Officers responded to the area of E. Independence Blvd. (Hwy. 74) at Matthews Township Pkwy. (Hwy. 51) regarding a report of a dead body on the roadside.  Upon officer’s arrival, it was confirmed to be a deceased male.  This is an ongoing investigation, but we currently do not have any reason to believe that this is related to a car crash or any foul play.
