For Allen Ray and Scott Taylor it was a weekly event.

“I’ve never seen nothing like it.”

The 2 fish at Barren River at least once a week, but Saturday morning wasn’t their ordinary trip.

“We come up through here and sure enough it looked like a body so we called police.”

Allen Ray says whatever happened to this person, probably happened a while ago.

“There’s been moss growing on it, it looks like it’s been there for a while.”

The rescue squad worked for 2 hours to untangle the unidentified body that was caught on a log. Authorities can’t identify the body as male or female yet.

The body was found off of Boat Landing Road just before eleven Saturday morning.

Bowling Green Police say the body was taken to Louisville for an autopsy and we should have those results by Monday.
