KSP: Remains found on Nicholas Co. farm after tip on Lori Feltz
CARLISLE, Ky. (WKYT) - The Kentucky State Police are investigating after finding human remains in Nicholas County.
KSP says they searched on a farm on Hovermale Lane after they got a tip about where Lori Feltz could be.
WKYT has followed her case for years. She disappeared in 2016 and the family tells us the 58-year-old had a brain injury. They believe she was taken advantage of.
Troopers say they searched the farm twice. Once on September 18, and on Monday. After searching for hours, investigators found clothing and human remains in a wooded area. WKYT reached out to KSP Monday night. By then, the scene had already cleared and a trooper says it’s up a gravel road on a private property.
Just 10 days ago, we reported on two persons of interest in the case being arrested. Brendan Camous and Clinton Peterson were wanted for sex offender registration violations. They’re now in separate jails in Kentucky and are being held without bond. It’s not clear how authorities tracked them down earlier this month. In 2016, they were seen in Nicholas County right after Feltz went missing.
Earlier this month, we talked to Feltz' sister, Tricia Langley. She said then, she hopes her family gets answers and closure.
We’re still waiting on the remains to be identified, but we have learned investigators from three counties helped with the search.
