The death of a Harrodsburg man who was last seen with the suspect in a deadly double shooting has been ruled a homicide.
Lincoln County Coroner Farris Marcum said Monday the final autopsy report from the state medical examiner’s office in Frankfort classified the death of Clint Disken, 31, as a homicide, although a cause of death was not determined. Marcum said the level of decomposition made it impossible to identify the exact manner of death or complete a toxicology report.
Disken shared a trailer home at 55 Fairlane Ave. in Hustonville with Thomas Hager Jr. until he was last seen in early March. Disken's mother, Patricia Devine, reported him missing after news broke that Hager, 39, of Danville had been arrested in the shooting deaths of Mark Snyder, 21, of Waynesburg and Ted Sparks, 54, of Danville on May 21 at Sparks’ home.
The last time Devine saw or heard from Disken was March 3 when he and Hager stopped by her Harrodsburg home on their way to a restaurant in Frankfort. She and Disken's sister have said they believe Hager was using Disken's Facebook account following his death to make it appear Disken was in Bowling Green.
