McCracken County deputies were called to the Fern Lake Campground, just outside Paducah, around 1:15 on Sunday afternoon. That's where they found 50-year old Michael Taylor of Benton inside a camper with 38-year old Connie Morgan of Sparta, North Carolina. Investigators say Morgan had been stabbed several times, and died at the scene from severe blood loss. Taylor had also been injured, though deputies are not saying what those injuries are. "It was determined that there had been some type of fight between the male and the female subject," says Chief Deputy Terry Long. "It did involve a knife." Long also says that before Morgan died, she somehow got nearby campers to call for help. "Evidently, Miss Morgan had exited the camper from what we've been told, and had alerted some of the neighbors that there was a problem," he tells Heartland News. "And the call came in from somewhere other than where the problem was."
