Greenup County, Kentucky Sheriff Keith M. Cooper, said around 11:01 p.m. Tuesday, Greenup County Sheriff’s deputies and troopers with the Kentucky State Police, responded to the 16000 block of Kentucky Route 7 regarding a 911 report of a stabbing. All that is known about the victim, Timothy Grizzle, 41, of 2901 Cub Run Road, is that he was flown from the scene with possible life-threatening injuries.


Officers said, when they arrived at the scene, they found Grizzle lying in the middle of the street, bleeding profusely and semi unconscious. Officers said the man could not speak because of the critical injuries and multiple stab wounds.

Cooper said the investigation is being led by Deputy David A. Bocook.
