Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police and family members are searching for answers after a woman's body was found in a Shepherdsville creek Thursday. The Bullitt County Sheriff's Department says they are conducting a death investigation and no criminal charges have been filed at this point. (Update 4:00 p.m.)

Capt. Mike Murdoch, Bullitt Co. Sheriff's Dept says the incident is considered a "death investigation" right now.

Detectives are waiting on further information from an autopsy on the cause of death, including toxicology results.

Murdoch says the woman and her boyfriend got a "bad batch of meth" Tuesday night. They used it and became paranoid of the police coming to the home where they were.

Pike and her boyfriend lived together at home near the creek where she was found. According to Murdoch, the woman fell into the creek Tuesday night. 

Her boyfriend did not call the sheriff's department until about one o'clock Thursday afternoon.
