KSP Identifies Three of Four Victims in Ohio County


Kentucky State Police have released the identities of three people found shot to death in Ohio County. 

The KSP says the victims found outside a home in the 5700 block of U.S. 62 near Beaver Dam were 20-year-old Hunter Owings of Centertown, 44-year-old Nora Owings of Beaver Dam, and 66-year-old Calvin Leisure of Beaver Dam.

Authorities have not released the identity of a fourth person whose body was found in a burned-out barn on the property.

Police were called to the scene late Wednesday afternoon and found three people deceased outside the home, with a nearby barn on fire.

Crews found a body in that building on Thursday.

KSP Trooper Corey King said investigators were not looking for a shooter, indicating the tragedy may have been a homicide-suicide.
