Kentucky State Police at Post 5 in Campbellsburg took a man into custody early Wednesday morning after he told dispatchers he had outstanding warrants — and he hurt someone who was possibly dead.
According to Trooper Brad Arterburn, public affairs officer at KSP Post 5, Robert Baldwin, 25, of Louisville called dispatch at Post 5 at 4:58 a.m. Baldwin told dispatchers that he had outstanding warrants and wanted to turn himself in. Baldwin then informed the dispatcher that he had hurt someone and they were possibly deceased.
Kentucky State Troopers arrested Baldwin before he arrived at the post and detained him on the warrants.
Troopers went to the victim’s father’s home at Kenlee Drive in Bedford and found the body of Angela Long, 24, of Pendleton. The Trimble County coroner pronounced Long dead at the scene.
After several hours in custody, Kentucky State Police charged Baldwin with murder.
Blunt force trauma has been ruled as the cause of death. According to Arterburn, Kentucky State Police believe they have the murder weapon in their possession, but would not disclose what the weapon was.
Baldwin is lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center.
