The body of a missing Tennessee man was discovered Tuesday off the shoulder of Interstate 65 in Kentucky.

Detectives said 32-year-old Patrick Jamal Washington, from Nashville, was found shot to death near the shoulder of Interstate 65 in Warren County.

Washington was reported missing Monday afternoon by his father, a few hours after Washington’s Jeep was found abandoned on a shoulder of I-65 in Madison, Tennessee. Police said blood and bullet holes were visible in the Jeep.

Investigators said they believe Washington was killed in the area his vehicle was discovered and driven to Kentucky.

Authorities say they are currently pursuing what they call “strong leads.”
