It happened around 7:15 a.m. on the railroad tracks closest to Clark's River Road in south Paducah.

According to Paducah police, the victim is Jacolby D. Askew, 22, of Paducah.

A railroad employee told police he was spotting for a train engineer when he saw a body on the tracks adjacent to Clark's River Road behind Lowe's.
