PRESCOTT, Wis. (AP) – Authorities in northwestern Wisconsin say a suspect is being held in the death of a Prescott man whose body was found in a box along a road in Kentucky.
Fifty-one-year-old Douglas Bailey was reported missing Nov. 30. Police in Kentucky say his body was found Tuesday in a large box on an embankment in an industrial area in Hazard. Bailey was a truck driver whose sister reported him missing after he failed to show up for a family Thanksgiving dinner in Peoria, Illinois.
The Peoria County Sheriff’s Office says Bailey was killed in Prescott and his body transported to Kentucky.
The suspect, a 44-year-old Prescott woman, is being held in the Pierce County Jail in Wisconsin on suspicion of second-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. She was booked Tuesday.
