Authorities are still looking for answers two years after a woman disappeared in Woodford County. The body of 65-year-old Patricia Last was found five months later, wrapped in a tarp, and just miles from her home. Her family continues to hope for answered in the unsolved case.

It's been two years since authorities combed the farm where Patricia Last lived in Woodford County looking for the woman who was reported missing by friends.

"Two years later we're still wondering exactly what did happen to her and are still searching for closure at this time," says Shad Medlin, the son of Patricia Last.

Five months later, her body was found along Lillard Ferry Road, just miles from where she lived. A memorial now stands along the area where she was found, while one of her son's, Shad Medlin, says they wait for answers.

"It is still something we think about on a daily basis," says Shad Medlin.

Versailles Police say, as of now, there are no criminal charges in this homicide.

"It's not something we have forgotten about or is on the back-burner. It is continuously talked about and continuously investigated," says Lt. Daniel Clark with Versailles Police.

They say they continue to wait for DNA evidence to come back in the case.

"The type of evidence like that just takes so much time, effort, and money spent trying to get all this analyzed and taken care of and that's the frustrating part of it. It takes so much time," says Lt. Daniel Clark.

Meanwhile, Patricia Last's family says they're also waiting for answers.

"Two years have flown by. I think that's because there's no resolution ending to this situation," says Shad Medlin.

If you have any information on the disappearance and death of Patricia Last, you are encouraged to give Versailles Police a call.

While police have never named a suspect in the case, they did identify one of Last's former employees as a person of interest. Richard Kincaid was charged with stealing items from Last's farm and is still behind bars.
