Authorities: Missing UPS pilot's remains found near his home


LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Authorities say a body found in Oldham County has been identified as a missing UPS pilot who was last seen alive in May.

Lt. Todd Kessinger of the Louisville Metro Police homicide unit tells local media outlets that Oldham County law enforcement received a tip Saturday regarding human remains found in a yard less than a mile from Kimsey's Jefferson County home near the Oldham County line.

Kessinger says dental records helped to positively identify 48-year-old James M. Kimsey.

Kessinger says it's unclear how Kimsey died and neither suicide nor foul play can currently be ruled out.

Kimsey, an Air Force veteran, disappeared from the home he shared with his wife and son on May 29, 2015 in the early morning. His remains were discovered a short distance away.
