After her father allegedly shot himself, the body of a missing 12-year-old girl was discovered in a secluded location.
Following the discovery of her father Stacy Collins with a gunshot wound, Stacia Leigh Collins was located in Kentucky on a rural road.
The mother of the student claimed that he had given her a terrifying final message asking, “Do you want to talk to your daughter one last time?”
Stacia’s body was discovered in a “very, very isolated” section of Johnson County, according to the police. According to local sources, she had been shot to death.
The road is “hardly ever travelled by anyone,” according to Johnson County Coroner J.R. Frisby.
Last Thursday, when police were responding to assault reports, they discovered dad Stacy suffering from what they suspect to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
According to the sheriff’s office, deputies found Mr. Collins’ 12-year-old daughter missing after further investigating the initial case.
“After exhausted all available leads in an effort to find the child, the JCSO and Emergency Management Director Gary McClure started gathering search crews to look for the kid.
“The search was initially focused in the region where Mr. Collins was discovered.
“Unfortunately, the juvenile was quickly found with the help of the public, but he had passed away.
The Johnson County Coroner’s Office sent remains to the Frankfort, Kentucky, Medical Examiners Office.
No other information can be disclosed at this time. The Sheriff’s Office of Johnson County is looking into this situation.
Stacia’s picture was previously posted by the police, along with the statement, “JCSO is requesting the public’s aid with information to attempt to identify this missing juvenile, Stacia Leigh Collins.
She hails from Van Lear, Kentucky, is 12 years old, and
Stacy Collins, her father, is currently making progress in the hospital.
Because “one of our dearly loved students unexpectedly passed away,” the school system will dismiss children early on Monday.
The Johnson County School District and the Porter staff both expressed their sincere sympathies to the woman’s family and friends.
No one has been taken into custody, and police are still looking into the event.
