SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - The identity of a south-central Kentucky man whose body was found in Lake Cumberland has been released.
The Pulaski County coroner's office told the Lexington Herald-Leader the man was 32-year-old Justin D. Shelton of Burnside. An autopsy was performed Monday, but officials were awaiting results before releasing a cause of death.
The body was found in the water Sunday morning. David Muse of the coroner's office said initial indications suggest that Shelton's death was accidental.
The case remains under investigation by the Pulaski County sheriff and the Kentucky Water Patrol.
