Hamilton County, TN - On Thursday, April 18, 2024 at approximately 11:55pm, a Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Deputy was patrolling the 11500 block of Birchwood Pike when he saw a deceased deer in the middle of the roadway. The Deputy then noticed a motorcycle off the side of the roadway and discovered the rider nearby.
