A burned body was found Wednesday afternoon in the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park.

So far, officials are not releasing a name, age, or if the body is that of a man or a woman.

A human body has been found in the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park.

The remains were found in Bell County in the Kentucky portion of the park and Kentucky State Police and the Bell County Coroner's Office responded.

Cumberland Gap is located where Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia meet.

http://www.wrcbtv.com/Global/story.asp?S=13283140


The body was discovered along Highway 988 in the part of the park that's in Bell County around 3:30. Investigators have not released whether the body was a man or a woman.

Park officials say it appears to be an isolated incident...

This is less than 3 hours from where Kara went missing. I was going to disregard it because she has been missing for so long... but with her father in law having a history of arson....

"I've always been told there are things worse than death and now I know what they mean," says Sheila Tingle.

It's been 145 days since she last saw her daughter, Kara Rigdon. The Marion County woman has been missing ever since her car was discovered empty on the side of the Blue Grass Parkway in July. State Police have had few leads, but their investigation did lead them to arrest her husband Bobby Rigdon and father in law William Rigdon on separate charges in a 2006 attempted murder. So far, they have not been able to link them to Kara's disappearance.

Marion County woman missing now for one year

One year ago this Sunday, Sheila Tingle says she had a mother-daughter day with her daughter, Kara Rigdon. Later that day, Kara left her home in Gravel Switch and never returned.

[snip]

While police don’t have any suspects in her disappearance, their investigation did result in the arrests of Kara’s estranged husband, and several of his relatives last September on unrelated charges. State and federal officials even executed a search warrant on the Rigdon family property. There hasn’t been much information since then, but Tingle remains hopeful and confident in the lead detective.

Tingle hopes an $11,000 reward will push someone to talk. Another reward for $5,000 generated separately by the national search group EQUUS is also being offered if the tipster leads the group to Rigdon. "I'm very confident," said Tingle.

WKYT has uncovered some disturbing details about Rigdon's past. His estranged wife, Kara Rigdon, has been missing since July of 2010. She was last seen near her Marion County home.

While Rigdon has not officially been named a suspect in his wife's disappearance, he has been arrested several times since. Once in 2010 for possession of a forged instrument, and most recently in May for terroristic threatening and wanton endangerment charges.

State police say they continue to follow up on leads about Kara Rigdon's disappearance.

There's a $10,000 reward for information about her whereabouts.

Three years after disappearing, Kara Tingle's smiling face graces yet another missing person poster.

The family of Kara Tingle, a mother who went missing in 2010, now hopes an increased reward totaling $12,000 will help bring answers to the unsolved three year old case.

In July it will be four years since Kara Tingle mysteriously disappeared from Beechfork Loop in Gravel Switch.

When Kara vanished, she left behind a then newborn daughter and 7-year-old son.

The not knowing what happened is torture for the family but their heartache doesn't stop them from marking the date of her birth.

Kara's 31st birthday will be Friday Feb. 21 and along with friends and strangers, the family will wear purple in her honor.

"That's Kara's favorite color," Kara's mother Sheila Tingle said. "We pray every day that God will send us the answers that we seek."

At the time of her disappearance, Kara was on the "outs" with her estranged husband, Bobby Rigdon.
