The Scott County Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate a body found Tuesday night in a vacant building in Austin.
Sheriff Daniel McClain said Friday he hoped to receive a report soon from the Kentucky State Medical Examiner’s Office in Louisville, where a preliminary examination of the body was to take place.
McClain anticipates formal charges in connection with the body will be filed Tuesday against Robert Riley Jr., 39, of 586 W. Main St., Austin. That’s where police, acting on a tip, found the remains McClain said he believes are of Paul Graupe, 50, an Austin man who went missing Nov. 24, 2009.
Riley reportedly told investigators Tuesday he stabbed Graupe and hid his body, McClain said.
Riley has not been charged in connection with the death of Graupe. He was arrested Tuesday, however, on a Class D felony charge of failing to pay child support.
