A body found in Scott County’s Elkhorn Creek yesterday was a homicide.
That ruling comes after an autopsy in Frankfort.
Sheriff Tony Hampton said they found the body of a Hispanic man partially submerged in the creek Friday morning.
Hampton estimated that the body had been there around 24 hours. He says they have also identified the man, but are waiting to release his name until his family is notified.
They are looking for his 2002 Chevy Avalanche blue 4 door pick-up truck. The Kentucky license plate number is 214NAY. If you see this vehicle, call the sheriff’s office.
