Missing Man Found Dead

Police say a Kentucky man, reported missing by his family, is the victim of murder.

Police found the body of 38-year-old Gregory Allen Shepherd in Knott County after getting tips from three people, now charged in the case.

Shepard's body was found by police around 6:30 Tuesday morning.

Police were able to find Shepard only after interviewing three murder suspects. Now, police say one of the three people arrested is responsible for his murder.

Shepard went missing last Thursday after his family said he never returned home from a hunting trip. His aunt says while on that hunting trip, he got into an argument and that was the last anyone had heard from him.

With that information, police interviewed 20-year-old Tommy Crum, 41-year-old Susan Morgan, and 33-year-old Tina Adtins. All three were arrested for complicity to commit murder.

That interview also led police to Knott County where they found Shepard's body in the area of Elk View Point.

Police are not releasing how Shepard died. His body will undergo an autopsy in Frankfort.

Police say they're confident one of the three people in custody is the killer and don't anticipate any more arrests. The suspects are being held in the Floyd County Jail.

According to Shepard's aunt, he leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter.
