LEXINGTON, KY. (AP) - Lexington police are searching the digital files of former state Rep. Steve Nunn as part of their investigation into the slaying of his former fiancee. The Lexington Herald-Leader cites court documents in reporting that police are checking to see if Nunn kept a naked photo of Amanda Ross on his cell phone, as witnesses have alleged.
A judge had barred Nunn from having any nude photos of Ross as part of a domestic violence order against him. Police have charged Nun in the shooting death of Ross outside her Lexington townhouse on Sept. 11.
The Lexington newspaper reports that shortly after her death, police found fliers depicting Ross naked along with "insulting verbiage." Investigators said in an affidavit that those fliers, found in Barren County, where Nunn had a home, "appeared to be designed for distribution."
