Unidentified body discovered in central Ky.

VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the discovery of a dead body in central Kentucky but details are scarce.

Versailles police spokesman Pat Melton said Thursday several agencies, including the Woodford County coroner and state medical examiner, are on the scene near Lillard's Ferry Road. Melton says the body will be taken to Frankfort for an autopsy to be performed on Friday morning.

Melton would not comment on how the body was discovered, or give any details, including gender. He said police received the call about the body at about 2 p.m. EDT.
