CORNETTSVILLE, Ky. — A Perry County man was found dead, two days after he was reported missing.

Stacy Lynn Coots, 47, of Cornettsville, had last been seen Friday afternoon. His car was found Saturday along Rogers Branch, but there was no sign of Coots.

However, his body was found Sunday in the forest a short distance from his car.

The Perry County Sheriff’s Office says evidence at the scene suggests Coots had walked into the woods to cut down a tree, but the tree fell on him and killed him.
