Authorities seek family of Prestonsburg man found dead

PRESTONSBURG — Officials are asking for the public’s help in notifying the family of a man found in Prestonsburg last night about his death.

Kentucky State Police confirm the body of 42-year-old Dequan Lajel Gray was found inside of his residence on Town Branch. Police say he appears to have died of natural causes, several days or perhaps several weeks ago.

Gray is believed to have moved to the area from California, and authorities do not know how to contact his next-of-kin. Anyone with information about Gray can contact Kentucky State Police or the Floyd County Coroner’s office.
