Where was drug smuggling parachutist killed in 1985 - Drew Thornton

A new season of "Justified" has started, and the first scene is obviously inspired by the drug smuggling parachutist whose body was found in the Island Home area of Knoxville in 1985. His name was Drew Thornton and he was well-educated and well-connected with the elites of Kentucky politics and society. There was a popular book on the subject, "The Bluegrass Conspiracy." I would like to know more exactly where his body was found. It was said that was behind the house of an elderly man, Fred Myers. Photos of the body were published on national TV and in papers, but I have been unable to find a street address. Can someone give me a street address or coordinates where the body was found? I would like to check it out on Google Earth.
