HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (8/14/13) – Yesterday, SurfKY News reported on the discovery of the body of Jon “Mike” Settle being found in Abilene, Texas.
 
Today, August 14, SurfKY News submitted an open records request to local law enforcement regarding the case. The resulting information stated that Settle was found in a hotel room in Abilene. Settle was deceased at the time of the discovery.
 
According to Kentucky State Police (KSP) Public Information officer Stu Recke, Settle was being sought in the Hopkins County area as a result of a KSP (Post 2) investigation into possible illegal drug trafficking. At the time Settle was found, a warrant had been issued on Settle on charges of Trafficking in a Controlled Substance.
 
Largely due to the location of Settle’s home, on Continental Drive in Madisonville, rumors were ongoing throughout the area that Settle may have been involved in the case of recently found Rodney “Bo” Hale, whose body was found near a residence on Continental Drive. Detective Scott Troutmen with the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office told reporters that there was no link between the Hale case and the Settle case.
 
SurfKY News has attempted to contact the Abilene Police Department for further information on the case, but has gotten no response as of this time.
