Updated at 11:54am - According to Shelby County Sheriff Willis Blackwell, on February 9, 2020, the body of Jimmy Anderson was located in a wooded area of a pasture off County Road 2135. His pickup was stuck in a heavily wooded area and his body was located next to the pickup as if he was attempting to get it unstuck.

The subject who noticed the vehicle was in the woods retrieving scrap metal from an old burn pile. A subject at the scene recalls there being a white pickup in the pasture around 3am on November 17, 2019. The subject stated the vehicle seemed to have been stuck, then freed and continued to travel down in the pasture. The subject did not report the incident.

At this time, there appears to be no sign of foul play but the body has been sent for an autopsy. This case is still pending investigation.

No further information is available at this time.
