KY - Man Arrested For missing man's murder, skeletal remains found, Clay County, 2005
Skeletal remains of what is believed to be a Clay County man are found after 12 years of searching.
Police say an on-going missing person's case in Clay County has been cold for several years.
Two months ago, police say the case heated up again when they received information, eventually leading them to a shallow grave they found Wednesday in Clay County.
Small family cemeteries are scattered across rural Clay County, but police say there was one body buried near this one that someone didn't want anyone to know about.
"The Laurel County major crimes task force developed information that led us to the gravesite. We did some digging and were able to find some human remains," Lt. Curtis O'Bannon said.
After sifting through information for the last 12 years, the search for a missing Clay County man led police to the Laurel County line. That was where some residents say they've questioned whether the remains found could be that of a man they know has been missing for the same amount of time.
Skeletal bones are all that remained to identify the body but being fairly confident in knowing who the victim was, police say they had to arrest Steve Ray Sizemore as soon as possible.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
