Kentucky State Police say they are looking for Paul Douglas Sizemore after finding three people dead in Leslie County Monday night.

Attached to this story are two previous mug shots of Sizemore. One was taken in 2005, the other in 2016. Please note his appearance now may be different.

Police want to question Sizemore after three people were found shot to dead in the Cutshin community, off Kentucky 699, south of Hyden.

The bodies of Larry Bowling, Norma Bowling and Chad Bowling were discovered around 7 p.m. Monday at two neighboring homes on Wolfe Creek Road, according to Trooper Jody Sims.

Troopers say Larry and Norma Bowling were married and were found dead in their home. Chad Bowling was found outside a home two houses down the road.

While driving to the scene, troopers say Sizemore rammed one of their cruisers and started shooting at Trooper Ethan Lewis. State police say he then got out of his car and ran into the woods.

Troopers say at this point, Sizemore is only a suspect in the ramming incident, not in the murders.

Kentucky State Police have confirmed Sizemore does have a lengthy criminal history and was wanted on a U.S. Marshall’s warrant for parole violation.

In 1988, Sizemore was convicted in a Clay County murder case. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison, and got out in April 2002. He later served time on federal firearms charges, and was most recently released from prison in 2016.
