The death of Jackie M. Bullock, 34, of Mount Vernon, who was found dead a few hundred feet off Lone Oak Road early Thursday is being investigated as a homicide.
Rockcastle County Coroner Bill Dowell said Friday afternoon that "it is a homicide," but he could not release any more details.
Bullock was pronounced dead a little after 4 a.m. Thursday.
Dowell said when he arrived on scene in Mount Vernon, Bullock's vehicle was in a field near 391 Lone Oak Road, about three miles from his home on Short Loop Road.
