MARYVILLE —No foul play is suspected in connection to the death of a Blount County man whose body was discovered Monday in a Maryville field, authorities confirmed today.

Maryville Police Department Chief Tony Crisp said authorities determined that after an autopsy was conducted Tuesday on 43-year-old Michael Anthony Browning of South Everett High Road, Maryville.

"It showed his (manner of death) was not indicative to any type of foul play and we can safely rule out it was a homicide," Crisp said.

At about 4:20 p.m. Monday officers were dispatched to the field off McCammon Avenue after receiving a call that someone had found Browning's body on the ground near a set of electrical transmission towers.
