The Kentucky State Police is asking for the public’s help in their investigation into the death of Daniel Couger, 72, of Big Sandy, Tenn.

Couger launched his boat in Sulphur Creek, Tenn., at about 3:30 p.m. on Friday, June 28, his empty boat was found on Kentucky Lake near Sugar Creek at about noon on Saturday, June 29, and his body was found at about 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 30, on Kentucky Lake near Sugar Creek, said KSP Spokesman Trooper Jay Thomas.

“What we’re really asking for is if anybody saw him during that timeline,” Thomas said. “Did they see him on the lake anywhere, was anybody with him, which way was he headed, things like that are what we’re trying to figure out.”

Thomas encouraged anyone who might have seen or been in contact with Couger between 3:30 p.m. on Friday, June 28, and noon on Saturday, June 29, to call KSP Detective Steve Silfies at (270) 856-3721 or toll-free in Kentucky at 1-800-222-5555, and said callers can remain anonymous, or text a tip to 67283 and also remain anonymous.
