Sheriff's deputies and officers from the Elizabethtown Police Department arrived on the scene at approximately 6:14 p.m. At the residence, they located two individuals, who were held and interviewed separately. 

While at the scene, deputies and EPD officers found freshly disturbed ground on an adjacent property next to the house, police said.

A cadaver dog was requested from Kentucky Bloodhound Search and Rescue to assist in the search. Detectives from the Hardin Co. Sheriff's Office obtained and served search warrants.

The dog alerted on the freshly disturbed ground. A few inches of dirt were removed and a body was discovered, the Hardin County Sheriff's Office said.

Rick Fisher, 43, of Louisville and Lisa Harvey, 50, of Hardin County were arrested and charged with murder. They are both being held in the Hardin County Jail, each on a $500,000 bond. 

The man who owns the home says he has been renting it out for the last 5 years. Neither of the people arrested were on the lease, but the owner says the renter’s girlfriend had recently moved in.

The investigation is ongoing, police said.
