Coroner: Dead woman found with dog-related wounds

WHITE MILLS, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say the body of a
woman was found near her central Kentucky home and she had
sustained dog-related wounds.

But Deputy Hardin County Coroner John Clemens says it is
premature to discuss the cause of death of 53-year-old Karen
Gillespie, a retired librarian whose body was found Wednesday.

The News-Enterprise reports an autopsy is scheduled for
Thursday.

Hardin County Animal Control removed a dog from the property
adjacent to where Gillespie was found.

Stephen Gillespie said his wife had gone in search of the
remnants of a one-room school house, which she planned to
photograph.

When she failed to return home, he reported her missing Tuesday
evening and search crews worked through the night.
