    I am wondering because it seems like there is evidence next to and under it.

    Great point! Also, it looks like at some point LE backed the car up to better see the evidence- as seen from the helicopter shot from margarita25.

    Thanks for this link, Rhino-Esq. :)

    Also from this article:

    &#8220;We don&#8217;t know if the crime occurred there [on Lookout Mountain] or if the body was left there. We do know it&#8217;s not a suicide or natural death,&#8221; says spokeswoman Jacki Kelley.

    It&#8217;s a popular area and detectives want to talk to anyone who may have been near the area during the last couple of days."
