Around 1:44 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23rd, a call came over the scanner sending Lexington Police Department to Ayers Street, where human remains had reportedly been found. Four LPD vehicles were at the site with Captain Jeff Middleton, Chief Investigator Scottie Kizer, Captain Donna Hetherington, and officers Wendy Nichols and Josh Reed. Officers spoke to residents in the mobile home located there and made several trips behind the residence into the wood line.

At 2:05 p.m. Captain Middleton confirmed that a forensic team had been requested to assist with human remains, which had been discovered in the woods atop a hill in the 300 block of Ayers Street. “The remains appear to have been there for some time,” Middleton reported. No gender or age could be determined at this time.

    Could this be the remains of Joe Clyde Daniels? The 5 yr old autistic child missing in Dickson county since April. For this to happen in such a small town is heartbreaking for everyone near and far. I hope you all can get some answers soon.

      Courtney it’s a bit of a stretch to think this is the boy from Dickinson.

      Dickson is over 70 miles away. It’s unlikely to be him
