Richwood woman died from blow

        RICHWOOD — A sharp blow to the head killed a 43-year-old woman in her home Friday, according to the Boone County coroner.

        Coroner Doug Stith released a statement Saturday saying the primary cause of death for Bari Lynn Doyle was “a blunt force injury to the head.”

        Boone County and Kenton County police are investigating the woman's death as a homicide.

        Boone County police received a 911 call at 10:59 a.m. Friday from the woman's mother and another relative, who said they had visited because they hadn't heard from her in a few days.

        When they let themselves into her home, on Travis Road on the Boone-Kenton county line, they found her body.

        Boone County Lt. Jack Banks would not say where in the home the body was found.

        Police say they have no motives, suspects, weapon or witnesses, Lt. Banks said. However, investigators gathered evidence from the scene, including taking shoe molds and castings outside the home. Police could not say anything about the shoe prints' description or who might have made them.

        Police are urging anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the neighborhood to call Boone County's Criminal Investigation unit, (859) 334-2120.
