LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Deputies say they found new evidence in a Laurel County murder case.

It has been almost two weeks since farmer and business owner 62-year-old Bryan McCarty was found shot to death in his home on Maple Grove Rd.

Detectives with Laurel County Sheriff’s Office say they are receiving dozens of tips that are coming in every day.

Thursday, authorities executed search warrants at a property he owns and we’re told several pieces of evidence were recovered.

“We were able to get enough information for search warrants for multiple properties that belonged to the victim. We traveled out there last night. We found numerous pieces of evidence,” said Deputy Gilbert Acciardo.

No word yet on what they found but authorities say it was valuable information.

There is also a $14,000 reward offered for whoever has information that leads to an arrest. Part of that is from an anonymous donor and $4,000 is from the local Crime Stoppers organization.

Anyone with information on this case should call 606-864-6600, message the sheriff’s office on Facebook or email
