(WBIR) - The Tennessee Highway Patrol is asking the public's help in its investigation of a body found early Christmas morning on I-40.

According to THP, dispatchers received a call at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday that a man's body was found on the eastbound lanes of I-40 at mile marker 364 in Roane County.

Troopers identified the victim Thursday. They say the preliminary investigation found Brian William Taylor, who is from South Carolina, either jumped or fell from a moving vehicle, and that at least one more car hit him.

Troopers have not ruled out foul play at this time.

THP asks anyone with information to contact them at (865) 594-5800.
