KSP: Female Body Found off I-65 in Hardin County

May 29, 2013

Kentucky State Police say mowing crews discovered a woman's body along Interstate 65 in Hardin County Wednesday morning.  Trooper Norman Chaffins says the body was found on northbound I-65 in a grassy area near the 99 mile marker. 

"We do know the body had been there for some time.  We don't know the exact time the body had been there.  That's something we'll determine with some accuracy once the body has been examined by the medical examiner," said Chaffins.  "Once we get a description of the body, we'll be able to put that out and compare with any missing persons reports."

Investigators do suspect foul play.  As police process the scene, the right lane of I-65 from mile marker 98 to just pass mile marker 99 will be closed for several hours.
