Authorities do not suspect foul play

A body found in woods alongside the Western Kentucky Parkway has been identified as a Vine Grove woman.

Kentucky State Police are investigating the death of 44-year-old Kimberly R. Snodgrass. According to authorities, the body was found Thursday afternoon when a trooper stopped to check on an unoccupied vehicle parked in the westbound emergency lane between the 45- and 46 mile-marker in Muhlenberg County

Checking the area, the trooper reached the top of a nearby embankment, where he discovered a female lying on the ground. Muhlenberg County Coroner Tony Armour pronounced Snodgrass dead at the scene.

Authorities said foul play is not suspected. An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday at the state medical examiner’s office in Louisville.
