Family in shock after Clay County man's murder

MANCHESTER, Ky. (WKYT) - It's a crime that's left a family in shock. Now, they want to know who murdered their loved one.

Relatives found the body of Earl Woods, 74, in his home on Belles Fork Road in Clay County on Thursday night. Woods' daughter-in-law, Dena Woods, says she couldn't believe the news.

"I wouldn’t know what kind of heartless monster would do this to such a kind, helpless man," Woods said.

The Clay County Coroner says Woods died of multiple sharp and blunt force injuries. His family says he was also robbed.

"Due to his failing health and numerous health problems, they could have taken what they wanted," Woods said.

Police say they do have some persons of interest in the case, but they have not made any arrests.
