Man's Body Found in Ballard County Field
By West Kentucky Star Staff
BARLOW, KY - Authorities are investigating a man's death in Ballard County.

The Carlisle County Sheriff's Department says their office got a mutual aid request Friday afternoon from the Ballard County Sheriff's Department for a UAV/drone aircraft to assist with a death investigation.

A deputy responded with several drones to fly over and take video and photos of a field where a local farmer found a body just off Tabor Road in Barlow.

Deputies said the man was wearing a brown belt, blue jeans, and a University of Kentucky sweat shirt. Investigators say they have not identified the man, and they do not suspect foul play at this time. 

The death remains under investigation. Anyone with any information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the Ballard County Sheriff's Department at 270-335-3561.
