UPDATE: Body found case ruled homicide

OAK GROVE, Ky. (WTVQ) – What began as a death investigation in Christian County is now being called a homicide by State Police. Investigators say the body of an African-American man was found Wednesday just off of Carter Road near Ghost Bridge by a patrolling officer from Oak Grove Police.

State Police say an autopsy on Thursday did not result in a positive identification of the victim, so DNA and dental records will be used.

Anyone who has information in this case is asked to call State Police toll-free at 1-800-222-5555. Callers can remain anonymous.

Arrests in child predator sting in McCracken County

PADUCAH, Ky. (WTVQ) – Attorney General Andy Beshear joined the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office to announce the arrest of two men following his office’s first west Kentucky sting targeting child predators.

Over the last several weeks, Beshear’s Cyber Crimes Unit expanded its’ child protection and law enforcement efforts by working with Sheriff Jon Hayden’s office to implement Operation Shielded Child in McCracken County.

The operation employed cyber-crime investigators from the Attorney General’s Office to investigate individuals who possess and distribute child pornography and those who solicit minors for sex online.

The Attorney General says Wednesday morning, investigators arrested 42-year old David Price, of Paducah, in McCracken County and charged him with 20 counts of possession of a matter portraying the sexual performance by a minor, a Class D felony.

According to cyber investigators, a search warrant was executed at Price’s residence where his personal computer was found to contain explicit images of children. Price was arraigned Thursday in McCracken District Court. His cash bond was set at $5,000.

Investigators completed two other search warrants in McCracken County this week. Pending the forensic examination of equipment collected during the searches, investigators anticipate additional child pornography arrests in the area.
Operation Shielded Child investigators also arrested 26-year old Mark Allen Johnson, of Rockfield (Warren County, Ky.), July 19 and charged him with prohibited use of an electronic communications system to procure a minor for sex, a Class D felony.

The arrest record states Johnson posted an online ad soliciting sex and asked to engage in sex acts with an undercover investigator who was posing as a minor. Johnson arranged to travel from Warren County to meet the minor personally in Paducah for what Johnson believed to be sex. Upon arrival Johnson was arrested by investigators. He was arraigned in McCracken District Court Wednesday morning. His cash bond was set at $2,500.

Operation Shielded Child cases will be handled by the Office of the McCracken County Commonwealth’s Attorney.

“I would like to thank my team, Sheriff Hayden and the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department for helping to make Operation Shielded Child a success,” Beshear said. “It’s a core mission of my office to ensure our communities are safe, and we will continue to work vigorously with local law enforcement to stop pedophiles from victimizing our children.”

“Working with and around this team of investigators for the past couple of days reinforces my belief in that efforts are being made to rid our Kentucky communities of these suspected sexual predators,” Hayden said. “All of us with children or grandchildren should feel somewhat at ease in knowing that someone is watching and looking out for them. The knowledge and professionalism exhibited by the Attorney General’s Department of Criminal Investigations was impressive.”

Beshear said Kentuckians have a moral and legal responsibility to report instances of cyber crime to his office by calling 866-524-3672 or emailing DCIForce@ky.gov. Information may be shared anonymously.

Culture changed?

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The media will tour the new UK football practice facility on Friday.  We’ll of course show you later in the evening on ABC 36 News at 5:30 and six.

Mark Stoops says it’s all part of the culture change at UK.

Stoops was at the Lexington Rotary Club meeting Thursday, where he talked about flashy uniforms, new helmets, nice gear and cool logos and videos as nice marketing…but the building of physical, top-of-the-line facilities and building within those walls as a program…that’s what really counts.

While it all helps recruiting, both climate and culture change as Stoops says, at the end of the day, it’s all for the current players, who bought into a vision…and earned this new dream.

Because they didn’t just want the surface stuff.

Hear from Stoops and see some of the new practice facility (courtesy of Kash Daniel’s Periscope account) in the video.

State slams Jefferson County Schools, orders review

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The state’s top education official has ordered a significant review after concerns emerged over Jefferson County Public Schools’ use of physical restraints and seclusion techniques.
The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/2ayK8ze ) reports that Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt wrote in a letter Wednesday that he is sending his staff to conduct an onsite review of JCPS’ management practices.
The newspaper reported in March that the school district had knowingly underreported to the state the number of times students were physically held down or confined to a room in schools.
The district originally told the state that it had restrained or secluded students 174 times in the 2014-2015 school year. That number was later revised to 4,165 incidents.
JCPS paid $1.75 million last month to the family of a 16-year-old autistic boy whose legs were broken when a teaching assistant physically restrained him.
