Police send skeletal remains for examination

Posted: Updated:

HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) -- Police in western Kentucky have sent what they believe to be the skeletal remains of a man to Louisville for examination.

Fulton Police Chief Terry Powell told The Paducah Sun officers found the remains after a neighbor found the body inside a home in far western Kentucky on Tuesday.

An initial investigation led police to believe the skeleton was of a male.

Powell said Fulton police -- along with the Kentucky State Police crime response unit and Fulton County coroner -- opened an investigation. The remains were sent to the Kentucky State Police crime lab for testing to determine the cause of death.
