A 17 year old Harrodsburg teenager was found dead Wednesday night in rural Mercer County.
Tristian Cole, 17, was found dead near Deep Creek Road around 9pm., according to the Kentucky State Police. Cole was shot in the back and left to die. A district spokeswomen for Mercer County Schools says there will be consulars available for students as this would be a “very difficult time” for the students.
There is no information as to who the killer is, and an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday. Anyone with information should contact the Kentucky State Police at (859)-623-2404
