Police need help identifying 7 bodies found in Louisville area (WARNING: Graphic)

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Among the graves at River Valley Cemetery is a murder mystery.

Police say there are seven unidentified bodies in Jefferson County — and at least two are murders. Police are hoping the public can help solve the cases.

“So the longer it goes, the worse our chances,” said Medical Examiner Dr. Amy Burrows-Beckham.

“Juan Doe”

Students helped pay for the grave of a man they call “Juan Doe” — instead of John Doe. Police still don’t know who the Hispanic man is, but he was murdered in 2009.

“I can imagine what the families are going through,” said Burrows-Beckham. “If my dog goes missing, I’m not going to sleep until I found my dog. I can’t imagine what people missing their children, their spouses or their mothers and fathers are going through.” 

In the autopsy room, LMPD Detective Anne Hogan, of the Major Crimes Division and Mission Persons Unit, and Burrows-Beckham are

Authorities seek help identifying victims in Pr. George’s child porn case

A former Maryland substitute teacher and basketball coach is suspected of victimizing dozens of children in a child pornography case being investigated by both state and federal law enforcement.
