TRENTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police are investigating the death of a 9-year-old western Kentucky girl whose body was found a few hours after she was reported missing.
A news release from the KSP said Todd County investigators found the child's body before dawn Saturday along a road between Trenton and Guthrie.
The county officials had asked for state police help late Friday when the child was reported missing.
The girl's name has not been released. An autopsy has been ordered.
The Kentucky New Era reported that the sheriff's department took a man and woman in separate patrol cars from the investigation scene to Trenton City Hall for questioning.
KSP spokesman Stu Recke said he did not know if they were family members or suspects.
