Troopers Find Semi Suspected in Man's I-69 Death
By West Kentucky Star Staff
WESTERN KENTUCKY - The Kentucky State Police on Friday night located the commercial truck involved in the death of a Dawson Springs man after receiving several tips from the community.

Troopers said they are still looking to identify the driver of the white Freightliner Cascadia.

Police said the semi is suspected to have struck Michael "Andrew" Dowd earlier this month, causing damage to the front passenger headlight assembly and hood. Police say it's possible that the driver did not realize they struck a pedestrian and may have suspected they struck an animal or object. 

Dowd's body was found Feb. 7 off I-69 near the city of Nortonsville. He had been reported missing a few days prior.
