A body found in Barren River nearly two weeks ago has now been identified.

Bowling Green Police say the man, believed to be a murder victim, is 42-year-old Michael Dean Robertson.

The somewhat decomposed body was found floating near Boatlanding Road.

Police believe it may have drifted quite a distance before being spotted by two fishermen.

Police are now asking for your help in identifying or locating three possible witnesses in relation to the investigation.

Police are looking for a white female, possibly in her 30s or 40s with light colored hair.

She was driving a dark-colored, extended-cab pickup with a bed cover.

This vehicle was last seen in Horse Cave at "Kentucky Banking Center" on March 4.

The other two witnesses police are looking for are a white male approximately six feet tall with medium build in his mid 20s or 30s, and a white female with a slim build and possibly in her late teens or early 20s.

They were driving an older model, white, single-cab pickup with dark-colored molding and were last seen March 5 at the new Wal-Mart on Morgantown Road.

Anyone with information on this investigation is asked to call Bowling Green Police.
