Two men were found dead in Floyd County over the weekend after disapearing the night before.
According to Floyd County Coroner, Greg Nelson, Mathew Wayne Wright, 38, of Honaker, went missing Saturday. His body was found under a train tressel near McDowell Sunday afternoon. Nelson says that the body has been transported to Frankfort to undergo autopsy, and that the death is still under investigation by Kentucky State Police.
Another man, Clifford Hall, 50, of Melvin, was found dead after his Toyota Camry left the roadway on Route 122 at Abner Mountain and crashed down the hill. According to Nelson, Hall was not wearing his seat belt, and alcohol may have been a contributing factor.
According to KSP, Pikeville Post 9 received a call of a single vehicle accident on Ky 122 in the Melvin community of Floyd County. Information obtained at the scene indicates that Hall was traveling West on Ky 122 when the vehicle he was operating exited the roadway and overturned into a creek. Clifford Hall was pronounced deceased at the scene by Floyd County Coroner Greg Nelson.
This accident remains under investigation by KSP Trooper John Dixon. Trooper Dixon was assisted on scene by KSP Sgt. Ira Napier, Left Beaver Fire and EMS and Coroner Greg Nelson.
