Kentucky State Police is investigating a death in Hodgenville.

Workers with the LaRue County Maintenance Department found the body of James Everett Martin, 43, in a lake in front of the maintenance building Thursday morning.

A LaRue County resident, Martin was familiar to many Hodgenville residents because he was seen frequently riding through town on his bicycle. He reportedly lived in the White City area with his mother.

Martin had been missing since Saturday. The body was taken by the LaRue County coroner to the Medical Examiner's Office for autopsy.

Additional details on the police investigation will be available in Friday's print edition of The News-Enterprise.
