Missing man found dead outside McCracken County home

SATURDAY UPDATE: Saturday afternoon, McCracken County deputies were called to West Lov-Flo Station Road in response to a report of a dead man found on the back porch of a home.

Stephen Sikes told deputies when he arrived home around 12:15pm, he noticed Floyd Neblett’s vehicle parked in his driveway. Sikes told deputies he knew Neblett had to be in the area and began looking for him. 

Sikes said when he checked the back side of his home he found Neblett dead on the back porch. 

Sikes told deputies he left his residence the day before around 3:00pm and a neighbor said he had seen Neblett’s vehicle in Sikes driveway around 6:00pm Friday night.  Sikes did not return home until just a few minutes before he dialed 911. 

Neblett knew Sikes and where Sikes lived, according to deputies.

Foul play is not suspected and has been ruled out. His cause of death has not been released.
