The death of a Harrodsburg man who went missing in early March has been ruled a homicide.
The coroner in Lincoln County said the case was reclassified Monday when he received an autopsy report from the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.
The badly decomposed body of Clint Disken, 31, was discovered in the cellar of a Lincoln County barn on Fairlane Ave. in Hustonville in late May. That barn is on the same property as a trailer Disken shared with Thomas Hager Jr. for a short time, before he went missing.
The same Thomas Hager Jr. who is currently in jail charged in the shooting deaths of two people in Danville this Spring.
Disken's mother, Pat Devine tells WKYT she's certain Hager is also the man who killed her son.
"Without a doubt. All the evidence points to him and he was the last person to see Clint alive," Devine said.
Now that her son's death has officially been ruled a homicide, Devine says more than ever she wants justice for Clint.
"I will never rest until I know the person who killed my son is held responsible," she went on to say.
Hager has not been named an official suspect in Disken's death. Kentucky State Police Det. Monte Ownens said he is still actively investigating this case. He plans to present it to a Lincoln County Grand Jury at the end of the month, which will decide whether to indict Hager.
"This whole thing has been so difficult on our family," she said. "We just miss Clint so much."
According to the Lincoln County coroner the level of decomposition of Disken's body when found has made it impossible to determine an exact cause of death.
