A man first believed to be the victim of a homicide died of natural causes, Roane County Sheriff's officials ascertained Friday afternoon.

"It appears that the gentlemen died of natural causes based on the medical examiner's examination,” Roane County Chief Deputy Tim Phillips said.

The man, whom Phillips described as "an elderly gentleman," was found dead mid-afternoon Friday in the front yard of a Robbins Road home just outside the Harriman city limits. Preliminary reports at the scene indicated that he may have been either stabbed or shot.
