Crews are searching the Cumberland River near Pineville for the body of a man they say was robbed and killed and police have two suspects in custody.
39-year-old Lora Amburgey and 27-year-old Joshua Parsons are both in the Bell County Jail, charged with robbery, kidnapping, and murder.
Crews are searching for the body of 70-year-old Paul Slusher.
They say Slusher was reported missing Tuesday afternoon.
Police say they later spotted Lora Amburgey and Joshua Parsons driving around in a van with a large amount of Slusher's cash and guns.
Investigators say at some point earlier this week, the two tied Slusher up, and then robbed him and killed him.
“Lora Amburgey was an acquaintance of Mr. Slusher, she did know him, and of course things led from there,” Trooper Walt Meachum said.
Officials continue to search the Cumberland River, where they believe Paul Slusher's body was dumped.
Meanwhile, Lora Amburgey and Joshua Parsons are being held at the Bell County Jail without bond.
