Police Say Kentucky Woman Likely Slain In Chile

Police in Chile are investigating what appears to be the slaying of a Kentucky woman in the South American country.

Twenty-two-year-old Erica Faith Hagan was found in the bathroom of her apartment in the southern city of Temuco Saturday morning.

A local prosecutor says she suffered at least three injuries to her head with a sharp object and police are investigating.

Hagan was a recent graduate of Georgetown College.

Chilean police said in a statement Monday that she had been in Temuco since July 28 working as a teaching assistant at a local school.

The Georgetown College site says Hagan was from Murray, Kentucky, and was scheduled to return home in December.
