Accused of theft, missing Kentucky woman found dead
MURRAY, Ky. (AP) – Authorities have found the body of a western Kentucky woman for whom an arrest warrant had been issued earlier this month.
Kentucky State Police spokesman Michael Robichaud tells news outlets that investigators are working to determine the cause of 31-year-old Jennifer Hicks’ death. He declined to say where in Calloway County the body was found Thursday.
Hicks had been the subject of a missing person investigation since Feb. 9.
Last week, Kentucky State Police obtained an arrest warrant charging her with theft of more than $10,000. It’s unclear where the theft charge stems from.
WPSD (http://bit.ly/1R5eCp9 ) reports Calloway County Coroner Rick Harris is scheduled to perform an autopsy on Hicks’ body Friday.
