breakingnews1MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (3/23/13) – On March 24, 2013, Sheriff Curtis McGehee with the Muhlenberg County Sheriff’s Office reported that a body of a missing man has been located.

According to Sheriff McGehee, a local farmer contacted Central Dispatch, informing them that a body had been found in a field on his property. The body was identified as that of 26-year-old Justin M. Wheeler, of Elkton.
