IN - Joseph Nelson, 35, shot to death, Warrick County, 17 Feb 2014
The Warrick County Sheriff's Office says it is conducting a death investigation after a body was found.
According to Sheriff Brett Kruse, the body of a man was found at the Warrick Alcoa Operations around 8:15 Monday morning.
The sheriff says it was discovered by employees at the coal handling system.
Authorities tell us the body is not that of an Alcoa worker. Deputies are now checking coal mines, docks and barges to see if any workers are missing.
14 News asked Sheriff Kruse if it could be the man who jumped from the Twin Bridges last weekend. He says authorities have no reason to believe so.
The sheriff says the man is about 30-years-old, around 5'9" to 5'10" tall and 160 to 170 pounds. Authorities say the man has a tattoo of a dragon on his right upper arm and wearing blue jeans, white shirt and a blue Nike hooded sweatshirt. He has dark hair worn in a crew cut fashion.
Deputies are asking anyone with information about his identity to please contact the Warrick County Sheriff's Office at 897-6180.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday afternoon.

Kruse said investigators believe foul play could be involved because Nelson's injuries "are not consistent with an accident." However, Kruse declined to release specifics about Nelson's injuries.

NEWBURGH, IN (WFIE) -
New information has been released in a Warrick County murder case. The three suspects, 30-year-old David Lackey Jr., 22-year-old Jade Stigall and 25-year-old Shawn Grigsby, appeared in court Tuesday. They face murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges in the death of 35-year-old Joseph Nelson of Martinsville, Indiana. Court documents say there could also be another arrest soon in the case. Authorities say Nelson died from a gunshot wound to the head. They say his body was found on a conveyor belt at Alcoa's power plant last week. The probable cause affidavit says Nelson was staying with Stigall in an Evansville hotel room. She says he made her feel uncomfortable so she called Lackey and asked him to pick her up. A close friend tells 14 News Stigall and Lackey are in a relationship. The affidavit says that incident led to the shooting. Authorities say the gun was thrown in the sewer, but it has been recovered.

From June 2015:
A Boonville man who could have received as much as 65 years in prison in a Warrick County slaying case will instead serve nine months home detention.
On Friday, David Lackey Jr., 31, received a four-year sentence in return for his earlier guilty plea to a newly filed charge of assisting a criminal...
Stigall, McCallister, Grigsby and Lackey met Nelson at a hotel in Evansville and then drove to a location near a railroad track in Northern Warrick County. There, according to probable cause affidavits, Nelson was made to kneel with his hands behind his back and was shot in the back of the head.
McCallister goes to trial April 4.
