Found Body in Robertson County Identified

(Mt. Olivet, KY) - Over the last eleven days detectives with the Kentucky State Police along with the State Medical Examiners Office, the Robertson County Sheriff and other local law enforcement agencies have been investigating the apparent homicide of an unknown white male found in a creek in rural Robertson County.

The body, which had been unidentified, was that of a white male approximately 30 years of age with shoulder length dark hair. The deceased was found dressed in blue jeans, a dark colored T-shirt with a Seattle Super Sonics basketball logo and a dark colored zip-up sweatshirt.

Following the autopsy investigators attempted to identify the deceased by conducting a national search of all police missing persons records. During this part of the investigation the Robertson County Sheriff, Randy Insko, received information, as to a possible identity.

The anonymous "Tipster" told the Sheriff that the body may be that of Roger Scott Fulton (35) with a last known address of Crooked Rd. in Carlise, KY.

The Kentucky State Police following up on the Sheriff's information, obtained medical and dental records for Fulton and provided them to Dr. Emily Craig of the State Medical Examiners Office.

On March 9, 2004 after comparing the information provided by the medical and dental records with the autopsy findings, Dr. Craig was able to positively identify the deceased as Roger Scott Fulton. As of this date the notification of Mr. Fulton's next of kin has been completed.

The investigation into this apparent homicide is continuing. If you have any information about this incident contact the Kentucky State Police at (859) 428-1212 or your local law enforcement agency. If you have a "Tip" you can leave it on the Kentucky State Police website by clicking here.
