Police Conducting Death Investigation
Jackson police are investigating a man's early morning death that occurred in his home.
At 12:14 a.m. Tuesday, police and emergency medical service were called to 154 Turtle Creek Drive. Scott Alexander Martin, 29, was found unconscious and had apparent head trauma. He was transported by ambulance to Regional Hospital of Jackson, where he was pronounced dead at 1:04 a.m. His body was transported to the state Medical Examiner's Office in Nashville to determine the exact cause and manner of death.
Martin and his 26-year-old brother, who also lived in the home, were the only two people present when he suffered the trauma. The brother was questioned by investigators and released.
Police have consulted with the District Attorney's Office and made them aware of both men's actions leading up to the death. The investigation is ongoing as investigators await autopsy results. At the conclusion, the findings will be shared with the District Attorney's Office to determine what, if any, charges should be presented to a grand jury.
