Private Detective: State Police Hoping to ID Jane Doe

State Police are hoping a forensic artist can help them identify a woman found dead last summer.

Jane Doe’s decomposed body was found in Hart County last summer. They have released an artist’s rendering of the woman based on her remains. They aren’t sure of the woman’s race, only that she’s between 20 and 50 years old.

“She’s most likely not going to be a local person. That’s why it’s so important we get this out today to the media and hopefully someone out there goes, “I know that person,” Hart County Coroner, Reggie Pettit told the media.

If the face looks familiar, call Kentucky State Police in Bowling Green.

Wrongful Death Man Accused in Death of UK Chef Faces Judge

After his co-defendant accepted a plea in the death of a University of Kentucky chef, the man accused of murder in the case appeared in a court room Friday for a discovery hearing.

Mark Taylor is one of the two men charged in the murder of Alex Johnson.

Johnson was reported missing in December of 2013. Investigators say that Taylor and his co-defendant Timothy Ballard lured Johnson out to a car where he was beaten to death.

His body was later found in a barrel in the Kentucky River. Taylor was on the run for several weeks after Johnson’s body was found and was ultimately arrested in a Texas border town.

Ballard pleaded guilty earlier this month to kidnapping and tampering with evidence in the case. He will testify against Taylor later this year.

Ballard has not yet been sentenced.

Taylor’s attorneys have concerns that they haven’t received all the surveillance video and/or other possible witness statements. They also expressed concerns that they have yet to receive the jury qualification form.

The Commonwealth has until Wednesday to respond to the defense’s discovery motion.

Private Detective: Thieves Steal From Local Furniture Store

Very brazen thieves stole big-ticket items from a furniture store off New Circle Road.

Faye Schimke, the manager at the Lexington furniture store, says that surveillance video shows the thieves made off with $13,000 in merchandise. They made off with a fire pit, four chairs, a love seat group and a chair group.

Faye believes multiple people were involved because some of the furniture stolen was very heavy.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

“I’m pretty sure that they scoped out the place ahead of time, because they knew where the cameras were, and knew to avoid the cameras,” said Faye.

She is willing to rule out any former employees because the store has not had any turnover within the last year’s time. She says most employees have been there 5-10 years.

Faye is hopeful that with the added security implemented since the furniture was stolen, that no one will steal from the store again.

If you have any information on who may have stolen the items, please call the Lexington Police Department at (859) 258-3600.
