Pulaski County officers arrested a guy for a Saturday morning murder and an attack hours earlier. After a Paradise Lake Drive shooting fatality, Somerset’s 57-year-old John Stacy was detained. A woman reported Stacy assaulting her on Parrot Drive Saturday morning. Stacy allegedly forced the woman into her home with a loaded revolver and intimidated her. A relative took her to the hospital. After interviewing the attack victim, deputies suspected Stacy of murder. Sergeant Cody Cundiff said the rural terrain makes it unlikely that two people committed the two acts, which occurred less than a mile apart. “Basically, because of the timeframe of the events and the fact that both of them involve a firearm,” Cundiff said.
Cundiff claims Stacy is unrelated to the two victims. He claims the attack victim helped them find and arrest the culprit. Cundiff said it was crucial. “We wouldn’t have known Stacy was involved without knowing who assaulted her.” The assault victim is recovering from non-life-threatening injuries. Cundiff says citizens contacted 911 after Stacy was seen acting suspiciously at a store and was arrested on KY 461 during a traffic stop. Stacy is charged with murder for the Paradise Lake Drive inquiry and attempted murder, burglary, assault, and kidnapping for the Parrot Drive incident, according to deputies. Cundiff said that Stacy’s home burned down the day after the incident, but they could not confirm arson.
