    KY - Hart Co., Dismembered body in container in Green River, Jul'16 - Kristen Edwards

    Kentucky State Police got a call around 6:45 A.M. Saturday morning from someone fishing in the Green River near Johnson Springs Road in Hart County. That person told KSP they had found what they believed was a body.

    When detectives arrived on scene, they found a dismembered body floating in a container in the Green River.


    (...)

    Eaton said KSP has not identified the victim, but "That's something that our detectives are working really hard to do. It's one of the most important things right away in this investigation."

    Pettit took the body to the Medical Examiner's Office where an autopsy will be performed Sunday morning. The investigation is still ongoing. No other details were released.

    Crystal Rogers I believe is the closest (could be wrong). Also Whitney Copley, Michael Gorley, Linda Price and Brookelyn Farthing, were mentioned in another thread. Where all does this river cover? Who knows how far the container floated...

    Green River is a tributary of the Ohio River, thus the flow of the current is generally from east to west.

    It appears to flow unimpeded from Green River Lake near Campbellsville and Hatcher in Taylor County.

    From Taylor County it flows into Green County and then into Hart County.

    Approximate road miles from where the body was discovered to the outflow at Green River Lake is 40-50 miles by my Google maps reckoning. "Crow flies" distance is shorter, of course.

    Distance in river miles from the lake outflow will be greater as the Green River meanders considerably.

    Missing body? Very Odd thing to say in an article......That has to be bad reporting.

    I am betting it's an autocorrect issue not caught during proofreading.

    Dunnville, KY, where Whitney Copley was last know seen, is located on Green River.

    Dunnville is upstream from the dam at Green River Lake. (The dam is between where she was seen and where the as yet unidentified dismembered body was found.)

    Dunnville is approximately 70 road miles from where the body was discovered.

    I wish we knew more. Whitney Copley would be skeletal by now.
