Martin Co. man's death investigated as homicide

An autopsy showed that a Martin County man found dead in his home died of a gunshot to the head, Kentucky State Police said Tuesday.

Family members found Gregory Moore, 46, of Lovely about 1 p.m. Monday, state police spokesman Trooper Mike Goble said. He said that because of the results of the autopsy, police are investigating Moore's death as a homicide, but they have little information.

Moore had been seen in the community the previous evening, Goble said, but it's unclear when he was shot.

Detective Jason Dials is investigating. Anyone with information may call the Pikeville state police post, (606) 433-7711.
