According to the Madisonville Police Department, three people are facing charges after a body was found in a home on Murray Street around 7:00 p.m. on September 10 in Madisonville.

Police say the victim was found lying on a couch, covered in lice that were feeding on the body. The victim was extremely dirty and was covered in bug bites, feces, and untreated sores. Police say it appeared the victim had not been bathed in quite some time.

Police did not release any information about the victim. Investigators say it does not appear the victim's condition was the cause of death. Autopsy results are pending.

The trio arrested all reside at the same address where that victim was found. Missy Clark, Tiffany Hankins, and Jerry Hankins are all facing neglect and abuse charges related to the incident.
