Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies report that they have arrested 47-year-old Scott Edward Pressley after finding a dead woman in his home.
The Laurel County Sheriff’s office says Pressley allegedly bound the female victim onto a mattress and then returned the next day to find her deceased.
Investigators say that Pressley allegedly then covered her body in items from around his house in an attempt to conceal and hide her.
The case is still under investigation and the woman’s body underwent an autopsy today to determine cause and manner of death, which was determined to be asphyxiation. The woman has been identified as 53-year-old Reanna Dodd of London. Police say Dodd was reported missing early morning on Monday. Pressley is charged with murder and lodged in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
