Police said they discovered human remains on a farm that likely belong to a woman who vanished in December 2016.
Kentucky State Police said in a statement that they searched a farm in Nicholas County on September 18 and found nothing related to Lori Feltz’s disappearance. On Monday, they reportedly searched the farm a second time and found human remains and clothing in a wooded area.
The human remains were reportedly found on Hovermale Lane, which connects to Hick Hardy Road — where Feltz, 58, was last seen alive years earlier.
“Based on the accurate information that we had about her general location, there’s a strong likelihood that it’s going to be her,” Trooper Cory Elliot told the Lexington Herald-Leader.
On September 17, Brendan Camous, 27, and Clinton Peterson, 29, were arrested in Kentucky for failing to register as sex offenders. Police in El Dorado, Colorado, initially said the pair appeared to be homeless and were possibly living in El Paso, Teller, and in northeastern Colorado. Authorities warned that they may be armed and dangerous.
Camous and Peterson were identified as persons of interest in Feltz’s unsolved disappearance. Elliot said the men told authorities where the remains were located.
Camous and Peterson allegedly told police that they discovered the body four to six weeks after Feltz vanished. Elliot told the News-Leader that the pair have not been charged in connection with Feltz’s disappearance and are not considered suspects.
According to Colorado state records, Camous was convicted in 2014 of sexual assault of a child for having sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl. Peterson was convicted in 2013 of sexual assault of a child after taking sexually-explicit photos of a 3-year-old.
An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday. Authorities have not yet revealed the results.
