Unsolved Murder: Chandra Coy

January 27, 1997

Hopkins County, Kentucky

Kentucky State Police are hoping you can help them solve the murder of a transient found dead in Kentucky.

Police identified the woman as 38-year-old Chandra Coy of Salem, Oregon.

Coy's body was found about 13 miles south of Madisonville, Kentucky along the Pennyrile Parkway.

An autopsy revealed she was strangled to death. Her body was wrapped in blankets and appeared to be tossed over the guard rail. She was found by a state road worker.

Investigators say Coy had long black hair and was wearing camouflage pants and a quilted satin type jacket when her body was found.

Detectives believe she may have been killed by a truck driver or traveler.

Initially, there was concern because Coy's body was found within a week and a few miles of murder victim, 16-year-old Sarah Hansen.

Police found the two murders weren't related. An arrest and conviction was made in the Hansen case, but Coy's murder was never solved.

If you have any information contact the Kentucky State Police at 1-270-676-3313.
