Missing man found dead after car crash


A missing man in Dyer County was found dead in a pickup truck wreck on Labor Day.

Cameron Sampson, 21, of Dyer County was reported missing by his family on Saturday, September 1.

A large vehicle driving on Parr Avenue in Dyersburg noticed a vehicle sitting off the road in a deep ravine. Police found Samson dead in his '91 Chevy S10 pickup truck in a ravine against some trees.

Dyersburg Police Captain Steve Isbell says Sampson could have been in the ravine for a while due to how far the pickup was down the ravine and that it was difficult to see from the road.

Isbell says it appears Sampson lost control of the truck and went off the road.

He also says it appears Sampson died from injuries due to the wreck.

No foul play is suspected. The incident is still under investigation.
