PIKE COUNTY DEATH INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY

Kentucky State Police Post 9 in Pikeville is working a death investigation following a wreck Saturday night. 

Just before 9:30pm, the Shelby Creek Rescue Squad and Dorton Volunteer Fire Department responded to a call of a single vehicle wreck on KY 611 about a mile from US 23. Upon arrival, crews discovered the body of 22 year old Caleb Ramey, formerly of Elkhorn City. 

Ramey was pronounced deceased at the scene by Pike County Coroner Russell Roberts.

KSP officials confirmed to EKB News that Ramey's body was transported to Frankfort for an autopsy, and a death investigation is now underway. 

Sources close to the investigation tell us the cause of death has not been determined.
