Kentucky State Police is asking for the public’s help in locating three men who escaped from the Calloway County Jail last night.
A news release says 23-year old Terry Hardin, 47-year old Tab Delancey and 23-year old Bradley Cathey allegedly jumped over a barbed wire fence. Hardin is described as a black male, standing 5-7 and weighing 174 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket and jeans. He had been incarcerated for burglary charges.
Delancey is a white male, standing 5-7 and weighing 185 pounds. He was last seen wearing a tan state-issued jacket, black boots and stone-washed jeans. He was also in jail on burglary charges.
Cathey is a white male, standing 5-11 and weighing 205 pounds. He was last seen wearing a camouflage sweatshirt, tan boots and jeans. Cathey was in jail on probation violation charges.
Police say they could be in the company of a female driving a red 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix with Kentucky tags 9-5-2-N-P-L. Anyone knowing there whereabouts should call KSP at 1-800-222-5555.
The community continues to mourn the loss of local radio legend and longtime WHOP News Director Jim Love, who passed away yesterday morning after a long battle with cancer.
Love was well enough in May to be honored with a dinner at the War Memorial Building where the man who hired him in 1972 was one of the speakers. Former WHOP General Manager and owner Roger Jeffers said Jim was at the top of his list when it came to all-time best employees at the station.
Like everyone else who has commented on Jim, Jeffers talked about the kind of person Love was and about the devotion he showed to the people he called friends.
Love was honored with the J.T. Whitlock Life Service Award this fall at the Kentucky Broadcasters Association meeting in Louisville.
More details are now known about the collision that ended with a vehicle inside the Hopkinsville post office late Sunday morning.
The Hopkinsville Police report says the incident happened around 11:45 when 81-year old Jesse Keown of Hopkinsville was attempting to park his vehicle. Keown told police his foot was wet and slipped off the brake and onto the gas pedal.
The car busted through the window and into the building, damaging post office boxes and doing other interior damage.
It was the third time in about two years someone drove a vehicle into the post office, with concrete barriers built in parts of the parking lot in recent months to prevent such incidents—though they didn’t extend all the way across.
Keown refused medical treatment at the scene and no one inside the post office was injured.
Funeral arrangements are now complete for longtime WHOP News Director Jim Love, who passed away early Sunday morning after a long battle with cancer.
Funeral Services for Love will be 10:30 Wednesday morning at Hughart and Beard Funeral Home, Hopkinsville. Burial will follow in Kentucky Veterans Cemetery West and visitation will be Tuesday afternoon from 4 until 7 at the funeral home.
Those scheduled to speak at the Wednesday morning service include WHOP General Manager Mike Chadwell, Love’s former Early Bird co-host Ann Petrie, Christian County Attorney Mike Foster, Reverend Ron Hicks and Dale Mitchell.
Memorial contributions are suggested to the American Cancer Society, United Way or to Alive Hospice, 1718 Patterson St., Nashville, TN 37203.
For the third time in about three years, someone drove a vehicle into the Hopkinsville Post Office Sunday morning.
No one was injured in the incident, with the latest crash happening near the middle of the building just east of where the concrete barriers end. The yellow pole barriers were constructed only recently following two other similar incidents.
The Hopkinsville Police report wasn’t available as of about 4pm, but officials say no one was hurt. Two men associated with the Postal Service were still at the scene late in the afternoon, when debris cleanup was all but complete.
A large window was broken out and a large section of post office boxes were knocked backward inside—with the ceiling and walls also sustaining damage.
We’ll have more details with the release of the report.
