Missing Child Found Dead

GUTHRIE, Ky-. A missing 9-year-old girl has been found dead. Kentucky State Police say Amy Dye, a 4th grader at South Todd Elementary School, was reported missing Friday night.

The family lives along Dogwood Drive near Guthrie in Todd County. Investigators said her body was found just after midnight under brush about 100 yards from her home.

The family was grieving Saturday evening. And with no suspects, there had certainly been no arrests made in this case by Saturday night.

An autopsy indicated the little girl died from blunt force trauma; investigators say the test showed she suffered from multiple blows. This evidence leads investigators to call her death a homicide.

The husband and wife are not the child's biological parents. The child was related to the wife and legally adopted by the couple.

"You never like to see death regardless of whether it's an adult or a child; however, children are especially difficult because it's such a young age, and the circumstances behind it. You know that something happened that shouldn't have happened, and it breaks your heart," said Trooper Stu Recke, Kentucky State Police.

Investigators were talking to Dye's parents Saturday night.
