Police believe body recovered in Richmond is missing mother



GEORGETOWN, Ky. (KT) - Georgetown police have confirmed they believe the remains found in a Richmond storage facility are those of Sheena Baxter.


The Georgetown Police Department executed a search warrant Tuesday afternoon at a storage facility about two miles from Joseph Hicks’ home in Madison County. Hicks was indicted by a grand jury Tuesday for Baxter’s murder.


The body was wrapped in plastic and has been sent to the medical examiner in Frankfort for identification.


Baxter was last seen between 7-7:30 p.m. Valentine’s Day, according to Commonwealth Attorney Sharon Muse and Baxter's family Facebook posts. Around 9 p.m. Valentine’s Day Hicks stopped at the Speedway on Darby Drive suffering from a gunshot wound to his wrist. Hicks told police he was the victim of an attempted robbery in the parking lot of the Georgetown Walmart.


Hicks’ robbery story quickly fell apart, and soon police learned that he was the ex-boyfriend of Baxter and that she had previously filed for two protection orders against Hicks in 2018.
