JELLICO, Ky. (WTVQ) – Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell says deputies are investigating after a body was found caught on a limb off of US 25W in Clearfork River.

Investigators say the Clearfork River had been running high, but has receded.  That’s when the body was revealed on a tree limb.

The Sheriff has not confirmed, but says he “strongly suspects” the body may be that of Randall Alan Walker, of Ohio.
