RUSSELL COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) The family of a missing man from Casey County tells LEX 18 that the body pulled from the water in Russell County earlier this week has been identified as Danny Hatter.

Hatter went missing more than six weeks ago. His truck was later found in Jamestown, with one wheel stuck in the mud. His body was found recovered from Lily Creek on Lake Cumberland Sunday night.

Relatives tell LEX 18 that the coroner has positively identified him. 

At this time, it is unclear what led to his death.
