Police have arrested a man they believe is responsible for the death of an unidentified man whose body was found early Saturday morning near I-75 and North Broadway in Lexington.
Timothy Meskimen is charged with murder and tampering with evidence.
Police found out about the crime after a woman who was staying with Meskiman at the Sportsman Motel on Winchester Road contacted them. She told them that she could take them to a body located near I-75. Workers at the motel say they heard that Meskiman and the deceased man got into a fight which had fatal consequences. Meskimen then reportedly tried to hide the body under some brush.
The identity of the dead man has not yet been released pending notification of next of kin.
