Baby found dead in Laurel Co.

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

A 10-week-old baby was found dead about 10 p.m. Monday by Laurel County Deputy Sheriffs.

The baby, Tatelyn Turner, was at the state Medical Examiner’s Office as of late Tuesday and more testing will be required, said Laurel County Coroner Doug Bowling. It could take up to two months before the report is completed and the baby’s cause of death is determined.

The baby was found Monday by Deputy Sgt. Chuck Johnson and Deputy Kirk Mays after they responded to a 911 call at a home about two miles west of London on Somerset Road.

Johnson and Mays tried to resuscitate the baby, but the girl didn’t respond, according to Sheriff John Root.

The deputies learned the baby had been left at the home early on Saturday with the brother of Johnathon L. Haynes, who is the boyfriend of the child’s mother, Rachel E. Kilburn.

Kilburn had reportedly told Haynes’ brother that her other child had been critically hurt in a motorcycle accident and was in a Tennessee hospital, and Kilburn and Haynes wanted the brother to watch the baby.

Officers determined the other child had not been hurt and Kilburn and Haynes had been “partying” for two days, Root said.

Kilburn and Haynes were found later Monday driving in the vicinity.

Haynes, 32, of London, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and other traffic offenses.

Also arrested was Kilburn, 29, of Cutshin in Leslie County. She was charged with abandonment of a minor, a class D felony.

Both were jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Laurel Sheriff’s Detective Charlie Loomis and Detective Stacy Anderkin continue the investigation.

Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County and the Laurel Coroner’s office assisted.
