OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - Authorities in western Kentucky say one of the three bodies found since Wednesday in the Ohio River was shot in the back of the head.

Daviess County Sheriff’s Department officials told media outlets the body also had ligature marks around the neck.

The body was one of two found Wednesday in the river. The other was that of a woman found near Troy, Indiana.

The Owensboro Messenger Inquirer reported that Daviess County firefighters on Thursday recovered the body of a woman between the ages of 30 and 50.

None of the three has been identified.

The bodies found Wednesday were badly decomposed, but Kentucky State Police said the body found Thursday appeared to have been in the water no more than a day or two.

Autopsies were planned.
