Hancock CHENDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (4/13/18) — A Hopkins County resident has been charged with attempted murder of another man.

Henderson County Sheriff’s Office reported deputies responded to Tyson Foods off U.S. 41 in Henderson County at 2:16 p.m. Thursday after receiving information that Christopher Hancock, 42 of Madisonville, was on his way to shoot and kill Eristin Wisnol.

HCSO reported Hancock was going to confront WIsnol for allegedly having an affair with his wife. Deputies set up surveillance in the area, and spotted Hancock, who attempted to “go around deputies and was blocked in by another deputy” at the poultry facility.

After a search of Hancock’s vehicle, deputies reported finding a loaded 9 mm handgun on him. His wife and two children were in the vehicle.

HCSO also revealed Hancock made threats on social media that he was going to “kill his wife and Wisnol.”

Authorities said Hancock had assaulted and held his wife at their home Wednesday in Hopkins County and did not allow her to make phone calls.

Hancock was charged with attempted murder. He was listed as being held in Henderson County Jail this morning, pending bond.
