  • Reports of Spencer body

    Reports by a Louisville media outlet of “a body found in Spencer County” may not be what it sounds like.

    According to KSP spokesperson Trooper Ron Turley, the body in question is related to an on-going death investigation. Preliminary evidence shows that the death of the Spencer County male appears to be self-inflicted, but investigators are waiting on the medical examiner’s review before releasing a final report.
