BREATHITT COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - We are following reports of a body found over the weekend.

The Breathitt County Coroner told WYMT his office was called out by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources to the Clayhole community on Saturday.

The coroner said a body was found on the riverbank of Troublesome Creek.

The coroner does not know if the remains were those of a man or woman, due to decomposition. He said the body was sent to the medical examiner’s office for identification.

This is a developing story.
