An ATV related death occurred in McCreary county over the weekend. The body of Lance Murphy was found around 02:37 Monday morning in the woods off of Horne Lane. Murphy was reported missing Sunday evening. Reports indicate he was last seen sometime Saturday evening. The search was conducted by the McCreary County Search and Rescue and Whitley City Fire Department. It appears that Murphy left the road way, at which point he maintained control for a short distance before being ejected from the vehicle. The preliminary cause of death appears to be from blunt force trauma, pending completion of the coroners investigation. The agencies involved were the McCreary County Search and Rescue, Whitley City Fire Department, Deputy Coroner Daniel Ridner, Kentucky State Police trooper Schaler Jones, and McCreary County Sheriff's Department Deputies Jerry Meadows and Phil Dahlstrom.
