Woman Helps Reunite Daughter With Late Father's Personal, Army Documents

Posted: Updated:

PULASKI COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) When a few historical documents belonging to a fallen former state trooper turned up, the people who found them made it their mission to find his family.

When checking out a gently used Grinnell Brothers piano in a Somerset business, workers couldn't believe how many personal and army documents were in the bench. The piano was picked up at an estate sale by an employee's relative.

The documents belonged to a Shannon B. Corman.

“Just judging by the paperwork that he was like, a really cool guy,” said Crystal Baker.

Retired State Trooper Shannon Corman was suddenly killed in 2010 after an explosion behind his Lincoln County home. Officials say that the 80-year-old was re-packing gunpowder, which was a hobby of his that turned into a business. James Greenwood, 57, was badly injured in the explosion and died months later. Corman's wife was also hurt but later recovered.

“He has, like, an incredible story to be told and I’m sure more than I know about,” said Baker.

A patriot at heart, Corman served in the army during the Korean War. He spent three decades as a state trooper before opening a gun shop, he then started a gunpowder repacking business when the store sold.

Not aware of his back story, Baker took to Facebook in hopes of finding any of his family.

“Like, within an hour, I knew his kids' names,” she told LEX 18.

On Monday, Baker met up with Corman's daughter in Pulaski County. Baker said that the daughter thought the documents were gone and never thought to check the piano.
