Two Bodies Discovered Off of a Roadway in Jeremiah, KY
Date of News Release: 02/06/2014
(Jeremiah, KY) - Kentucky State Police Post 13 in Hazard responded to a call in the Jeremiah community of Letcher County, in which the bodies of two male subjects had been discovered. KSP troopers responded to Arthurs Loop, off of Blair Branch, in Jeremiah, where an ATV had been located over an embankment in the area. The ATV had apparently traveled off of a dirt road, adjacent to Arthurs Loop, and overturned.
The body of Tracy Adams, age 34, of Jeremiah, KY, was located underneath the ATV, while the body of his father, 70 year old Carlos Adams, also of Jeremiah, KY was lying next to the ATV, with his leg trapped between the ATV and a tree. Both were pronounced deceased at the scene by the Letcher County Coroner's Office. It has yet to be determined which subject was driving, or how long the subjects had been deceased.
The bodies will be transported to the State Medical Examiners Office, in Frankfort, for autopsies. This incident remains under investigation by KSP Post 13 in Hazard.
