Autopsy in order for woman found dead in Magoffin Co. home

The investigation is continuing into the death of a Magoffin County woman who was found dead in her home last week, 44-year-old Karen Pitts.

KSP trooper Shaun Little stated that when Troopers arrived at the scene, they found Pitts deceased in her residence. It is unclear at this time if Pitts had any injuries that may have contributed to her death. Police say until an autopsy is completed, they cannot release much information.

"Once that information is passed along to me from Det. Phillips, that will be something that'll probably be released after it's concluded," said Little.

Pitts' body was taken to Frankfort where an autopsy will be completed Tuesday. KSP Detectives Chris Phillips and Jason Merlo are investigating.
