Body found in burned Danville home expected to be identified Friday

DANVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - Margaret "Libby" Moore's family says they are still waiting for answers. They believe she was the person found in her family's burned home Wednesday morning, but it could be another day until they know for sure.

Family members say Moore, who went by Libby, was the only person at the home when fire started early Wednesday morning.

Moore's husband and two of her sons were spending the night at a family cabin.

On Thursday her mother said their family is desperate for answers. She says Moore was actually raised by an aunt, who is now in a nursing home.

"We just want to know how she died," Gail Arthur said.

Firefighters recovered a body from the home around 10AM on Wednesday. It was sent to the State Medical Examiners Office.

Police records show that on Tuesday police were at the home twice. Once in the morning to check on a report of a domestic disturbance and again that night because someone at the address requested paperwork to file an emergency protective order.

The home has been fenced off by investigators but a makeshift memorial has been set up near the fence.

The Boyle County Coroner says they expect to get that positive identification sometime tomorrow.

A memorial fund has been established to help Libby Moore's family. It's at Farmers National Bank in Perryville.
