On April 9, 1989 human remains of a large male were found in a tobacco barn off KY State Highway 22 about 7.5 miles west of Dry Ridge near Williamstown, Kentucky. The victim was shot twice in the back of his head with a .22 caliber weapon, and he was stripped of all of his clothing. Also, his hands were severed from his arms. Forensic scientists determined the deceased to be a White/Caucasian male, 25-35 years-old, 6′ 5″ tall, and weighing approximately 220 pounds. He wore his medium brown hair in a crew cut with short sideburns. The victim died approximately two weeks prior to being found. The case is being treated as a homicide.
