LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington Police are asking for the public's help in the investigation of the 1977 disappearance of Melanie Flynn. They are asking for older photos of Murphy's Landing.

Murphy's Landing is along the Kentucky River and U.S. 68 at the Jessamine and Mercer County line. Investigators are seeking photos of the area from the 1950s-1970s that may show buildings or structures there at the time.

Last week, police received a tip that Flynn may be buried in an underground septic tank at the old campground. After her 1977 disappearance, Flynn's purse was found in the Camp Nelson area along the Kentucky River.

Many believe that her disappearance has to do with the key players in the Blue Grass Conspiracy, which was a mega drug ring operated by dirty Lexington police in the 1970s.

Authorities need your help.

Photos can be emailed to policepio@lexingtonpolice.ky.gov. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Lexington Police by calling (859) 258-3600.
