Evidence Found On Homicide Investigation At Kentucky River

Evidence Found On Homicide Investigation At Kentucky River

A search took place along the Kentucky River Friday afternoon that the police are calling a homicide investigation.
On Friday morning around 8 a.m. officials responded to Old Richmond Road near the Kentucky River.

Over a dozen officials from the Lexington Police, Lexington Fire Department, and Dive Team searched the waters along the river for a key piece of evidence in a homicide investigation.

The Lexington Police did find the evidence they were looking for. Officials say it was submerged about 4 feet down in the river and 10-15 feet off the shore near Riptides Bar.

Officials will not tell us what the evidence is but will say the coroner is looking at it.

In December the Lexington Police Department was searching for evidence in this location. There was speculation that the search was tied to the case of a missing Lexington man named Alex Johnson.

Alex Johnson disappeared on December 20th, 2013 at his home on Hanover Avenue in Lexington.

He was last heard from by his girlfriend who was talking to him on the phone, when Johnson received a knock on his door.

He has not been heard from since.

Earlier this week police arrested Timothy Ballard, and charged him with kidnapping and tampering with physical evidence. On Thursday Pharr, TX Police arrested Robert Markham Taylor Wednesday night at a hotel.

Police would not say how they tracked Taylor to Texas. Lexington Police wanted to arrest Taylor on warrants accusing him of tampering with evidence, kidnapping Alex Johnson, and murdering him.

Alex has still not been found.
