Wanda English Burnett, Editor
Pathologists have positively identified a body that was recovered
from the Ohio River on Monday, April 9 as that of Ashley Robinson,
23 of Hanover.
In an earlier report, five people were charged with the murder of
Robinson, however, her body had not been found. Information given
to police led them to believe her body had been dumped in the Ohio
River. Crews diligently searched the water and as Conservation Officers
David Jackson and Andy Crozier were patrolling on the Ohio River
their diligence paid off. Information from the Indiana State Police
noted that the officers discovered a body around 2:45 p.m. on Monday
that was approximately five miles down stream from where investigators
believe the murder occurred.
The body was taken to the Kentucky Medical Examiners Office
in Louisville, where an autopsy was performed giving police the
positive identification they needed.
According to Ripley Publishing files, Robinson was reported missing
to the Jefferson County Sheriffs Department on February 12.
On March 14 it was announced that she had been murdered. That announcement
came with the arrests of five people: Brandon Skinner, 24, of Madison;
Michael Cory Bowling 24, of Hanover; Brian Kemp, 27, of Hanover;
Donielle Sherley, 23, of Madison; and Carissa Miller, 18, of Hanover.
