The body of a Bowling Green woman was found Thursday inside her car in the parking lot of Walmart on Morgantown Road.

Video surveillance shows her car in the lot Tuesday, Bowling Green Police Department spokesman Officer Ronnie Ward said.

A passerby saw the woman slumped over in the driver’s seat and called police at 4:22 p.m. Thursday, Ward said.

City police found a note that appears to indicate that the woman died from an intentional drug overdose, Ward said. However, the case remains under investigation. Her body was sent for an autopsy at the state medical examiner’s office in Louisville.

Police are not releasing her name pending notification of family, Ward said.

Guilty plea — A Logan County man entered a guilty plea Thursday to sexual crimes involving an 11-year-old girl.

Donald Ray Barker, 53, of Russellville, pleaded guilty in Logan Circuit Court to first-degree sodomy and three counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

Barker submitted the child to inappropriate sexual contact in acts he said occurred around 10 years ago.

With the guilty plea, the Logan County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office will not bring any additional charges against Barker involving the victim.

The plea agreement recommends a 20-year prison sentence. Barker is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 20 by Logan Circuit Judge Tyler Gill.

Theft — Kentucky State Police received a theft complaint Oct. 24 from a man in Hart County who reported that someone stole a tree stand from his hunting area on property off Chestnut Grove Cemetery Road.

The tree stand was recovered, and Bobby Logsdon, 39, of Bonnieville, was charged with felony theft by unlawful taking, according to a release from state police.

Logsdon was lodged in Hart County Jail, according to the release. He was released Monday after posting a $9,500 unsecured bond, according to Hart County Jail records.
