Police searching Kentucky River for evidence in murder case

Kentucky State Police and the Lexington Fire Department dive team say they are searching the Kentucky River for evidence in a murder investigation.

Divers went into the water around noon on Friday.

Troopers say they were told some piece of evidence was tossed from the Kentucky River bridge and they say it could help in the Roy Combs murder investigation.

Divers confined their search to about 50 feet around the center support column of the bridge. Kentucky State Police say if something was tossed into the water, that is where it would likely be.

They also checked along the banks of the river.

Troopers say on May 13th, Roy Combs was found shot to death on Athens-Boonesboro Road in Clark County.

Four people have been arrested for Combs’ murder.

Troopers have not said what they are looking but they are hopeful that they will find something.

Troopers say they are doing a full search of the river with sonar.
