dnaMORGANFIELD, Ky. (6/12/18) — Kentucky State Police Post 16 says a Henderson man’s DNA has linked him to a rape crime reported by a Morganfield woman in 2016.

Isaiah D. Jonson, 21, was arrested today on the charge of first-degree rape and taken to Henderson County Jail.

Post 16 reports the investigation began two years ago after an adult female told KSP she was speaking to Johnson via Facebook.

The two planned to meet in Morganfield, where the victim claimed Johnson forcibly raped her.

KSP Crime Lab confirmed the collected DNA was Johnson’s, according to the report. The evidence was presented June 5 to a Union County grand jury that resulted in an indictment warrant issued for Johnson.
