December 01, 2016 III By Cecil Lawson KyNewsGroup cecil@kynewsgroup.com Kentucky State Police are currently investigating human remains found just off of US 60 in Bath County. Bath County Sheriff John Tuffy" Snedegar was dis- . patched to 3391 East High- way 60, about 3 miles east of Owingsville, just after 2 p.m. Monday afternoon after a bulldozer operator uncovered human remains while clearing brush on the property. Sheriff Snedegar re- quested assistance from Kentucky State Police af- ter he said he saw a skull, bones, and clothing at the site, located a few yards off of US 60. A Kentucky State Po- ;- lice Crime Scene Unit and detectives were on scene throughout the afternoon, and the remains were re- moved under the supervi- e sion of Bath County Coro- ner Robbie Powell and transported to the Ken- tucky State Police Central Laboratory in Frankfort for identification. KSP was on scene again Tuesday morning and ex- amining the site but had cleared the scene in the afternoon. According to Kentucky State Police Trooper Scott Ferrell on Tuesday morn- ing, the remains had yet to be identified at that time. Sheriff Snedegar said on Monday that he believed that, based on what he had seen atthe site, the remains were those of Crystal War- ner, 35, who went missing with her boyfriend, Robert Jones, 38, on July 3. Both were from Florence. Warner and Jones were last seen alive on July 3 on Texas Road in Springfield, Kentucky. They had vis- ited a cabin they owned to make sure that a renter who they had recently evicted had left the prop- erty. The last known "ping" from Jones' cell phone was on Interstate 64 near Frank- fort later that evening. Their car was discovered Friday, July 8, just off of In- terstate 75 in Georgetown. Later that same day, Craig Pennington, Warner and Jones' former tenant, was arrested in Washing- ton County and charged with their murders. Jones' body was discov- ered on Friday, August 8, just off of Goshen Road in Clark County near the 101 exit on 1-64. Friends, family, and members of the Ohio Chapter of Texas Equuse- arch have searched mul- tiple areas along 1-64 for Warner's body, including twice in Bath County. We will continue to fol- low this case as it develops. e Ii Photo by Cecil Lawson Kentucky State Police troopers and detectives were at the scene on Tuesday morn- ing of human remains discovered on a property located just east of Owingsville US 60.
