Coroner: Body was in cave for ‘significant period of time’

MONTICELLO, Ky. (AP) – A body has been found inside a cave in Monticello.

Wayne County Coroner Forrest Hicks tells news outlets that the Monticello police contacted his office after the body was discovered Tuesday morning on Trails End Road.

Hicks says the body appeared to be that of a male, but the person’s identity remains unknown, as well as the cause of death.

An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday in Frankfort.

Hicks says the body had been there for a significant period of time, and was visible from the entrance to the cave, which is similar to a sinkhole.
