State confirms ID of missing Houston Co. man

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The state medical examiner confirmed that a body found on Thanksgiving Day was that of a Houston County man reported missing in early October.

Leamon Luffman, 65, disappeared from his Bateman Branch Road home in October, leaving the coffee pot on and a single rose on the kitchen counter.

Family and friends were stumped by his disappearance.

Dozens of volunteers combed the nearby woods for any sign of Luffman.

Officials said it did not look like foul play was involved and they are working to determine a cause of death.

Funeral services for Luffman were held Sunday.
