After officers saw videos from local businesses of Spicer walking towards the pond next to Shannon Way, police searched the pond on Monday but did not find anything.

On Tuesday, Kentucky Fish & Wildlife were able to use aquatic cameras to help search the water, and Stanford Fire provided a drone for an aerial search.

Search crews recovered a body that matched Spicer’s description, who is a 32-year-old biracial male with a beard. Boyle County Coroner’s Office responded to the scene and pronounced the male deceased. 

The search combined the efforts of Danville Police, Boyle County Sheriff’s Office, Kentucky Fish & Wildlife, Danville Fire, Boyle County Fire/Dive Team, Stanford Fire, Boyle County EMS, and Kentucky State Police.

The investigation is ongoing and further information will be provided when available.
