Man charged in animal-hoarding incident is found dead

Kentucky State Police are investigating the death of a Henry County man who was recently charged in an animal hoarding incident, according to state police at the Campbellsburg post.

The body of Kenneth H. Smith, 71, who bonded out of the Carroll County jail on Saturday, was found inside a vehicle parked in his driveway. A preliminary investigation showed that he died from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, state police said.

A family member found Smith's body and called authorities, state police said.
