The first incident was a vehicle accident on The Trace in LBL just before 5 a.m. Saturday.

In a report by the KSP and the Trigg County Coroner’s Office, 19-year-old Harry Kincaid, of Texas, was pronounced dead on the scene.

After an investigation by KSP, the driver of the vehicle, 19-year-old Christopher Swykert of Melissa, Texas, was arrested and charged with DUI and murder.

Kincaid was in the U.S. Army and stationed at Fort Campbell.

Kentucky State Police and the Trigg County Coroner’s Office were assisted on the scene by Trigg County Rescue, Trigg County EMS, Trigg County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Forestry Service at LBL.

Also this weekend, the body of a woman, later identified as 41-year-old Traci Jones of Granbury, Texas, was found floating in a container near Colson Hollow on Kentucky Lake Saturday night.

A medical examiner identified Jones following an autopsy Sunday in Madisonville, according to a KSP statement.
