LEITCHFIELD, Ky. -- Authorities say a body has been found inside a toolbox floating in a Grayson County creek.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Jeff Gregory tells news outlets that someone found the body of an adult male Tuesday in a large toolbox floating in Spring Fork Creek, a tributary of Rough River.

Authorities say the toolbox is similar to one that would be found in the bed of pickup trucks.

An autopsy is being conducted at the medical examiner's officer in Louisville. No further details have been released.
