Suspect Jailed in Death of WI Man Found in a Box in Kentucky

Northwestern Wisconsin Woman Arrested After Man Found Dead in Kentucky

Authorities in northwestern Wisconsin say a suspect is being held in the death of a Prescott man whose body was found in a box along a road in Kentucky.

Fifty-one-year-old Douglas Bailey was reported missing Nov. 30.

Police in Kentucky say his body was found Tuesday in a large box on an embankment in an industrial area in Hazard.

Bailey was a truck driver whose sister reported him missing after he failed to show up for a family Thanksgiving dinner in Peoria, Illinois.

The Peoria County Sheriff’s Office says Bailey was killed in Prescott and his body transported to Kentucky.

The suspect, a 44-year-old Prescott woman, is being held in the Pierce County Jail in Wisconsin on suspicion of second-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse.

She was booked Tuesday.
