A missing person case police thought was closed Monday after a year and a half of searching for Winchester resident Thomas Profitt is open again.
According to Winchester Police Det. Danny Thomas, skeletal remains found Monday that the Spencer County Sheriff Department thought belonged to Profitt didn't match his description after all.
Emily Craig, the state medical examiner, told Thomas yesterday that the round wire-rimmed glasses found at the scene were not an identical match to those worn by Profitt, as first reported.
And hair next to the skull was a shade of brown, not gray, which is also inconsistent with original reports. Thomas further discovered there are 13 missing person cases in Kentucky of men that also wear size 13 boots, such as the ones found in Spencer County.
