Henderson police reported the discovery of Gillespie’s body in the Ohio River during a press conference on Sunday afternoon.

When police arrived, they determined it was a body, and it was discovered near Gillespie’s last known location.
McKinney said he thought the five-day quest for Gillespie was over. “A preliminary investigation indicates that we recovered the body of Bradley Gillespie from the river,” he stated. The chief stated that the body would be autopsied on Tuesday. It was unclear how long Gillespie had been in the water or if he had died. McKinney went on to say that the degree of decay on the body indicated he had been dead for around four days.
