Fugitive in baby swap returns

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective Charlie Loomis was expected to arrive in London Thursday night at about 10:30 p.m. with fugitive Heather Kaminskey.

Kaminskey had been sought last week after she sold a Dodge Dakota, for which she had swapped her newborn about six months ago when the child was born.

She was located in Putnam County, Fla., and the Putnam County’s sheriff’s office and the U.S. Marshal’s office got word to Laurel County’s sheriff office.

The couple that exchanged the Dodge for the baby with Kaminskey was arrested and charged with felony human trafficking and Kaminskey will face the same charge upon arriving again in Kentucky.

Loomis made the 695-mile trip to Florida to return Kaminskey.
