Bradley Gillespie found dead

McKinney said the information was preliminary, “but everything we’ve seen and done indicates that this is the Mr. Gillespie that we’ve recovered.” A boater on the river saw the body and alerted police around 1:30 p.m. local time. Investigators believe the body had been in the water for “four or five days,” McKinney said.

Police had previously conducted searches of the area where the body was found, but, McKinney said, Gillespie’s body had likely not yet risen to the surface. “We are happy to close this situation,” McKinney told reporters. “However, I don’t think it’s appropriate to celebrate the death of any life at this time.”

Gillespie, 50, and Lee, 47, were last seen on prison surveillance cameras Monday morning, according to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction and the Ohio State Highway Patrol. During an inmate count Tuesday morning at the Allen-Oakwood Correctional Institution in Lima, Ohio, officials noticed Lee was missing and later discovered Gillespie was also gone.


Early Wednesday morning, Henderson, Kentucky, police spotted a stolen vehicle the couple was believed to be using, according to a statement. Officers tried to stop the vehicle, but it sped away and crashed, police said. The two men then fled on foot, and Lee was arrested.

Gillespie had been in the Ohio prison since late 2016, according to the state corrections department. Lee entered prison in 2021 after being convicted of various crimes, including breaking and entering, burglary and safe robbery.Read More……
