The body of a Lexington man was found Tuesday morning outside a Nicholasville garage.

The body of Thamer Hasan, 41, of Lexington was found by his brother at the front entrance of Hadi Automobile Sales in Nicholasville, said Jessamine County Coroner Michael Hughes, who arrived there at 11:14 a.m. Hughes said Hasan and his two brothers operate the business at 325 North Main Street.

The cause of death was not immediately known; Hasan had minor injuries to his face and body, Hughes said. He said Hasan had been dead for about six or seven hours before he was found. An autopsy is to be conducted Wednesday at the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.
