Sheriff Brandon Boone stated that Michael, who lived and worked in Clay County, Tennessee, went missing and was discovered dead in a vacant house, as reported by CBS. He was unknown to have any relation to that home.
The Kentucky State Police are looking into Michael Harding’s death as a possible homicide. Boone stated a suspect in his murder was arrested in California. Just days before Harding’s body was discovered, officers arrested Thomas Francis O’Donnell at Sacramento International Airport on a murder charge in connection with Michael’s death.
Months earlier, in Kentucky, agents found Michael dead with gunshot wounds on September 26 at a home on Glasgow Road in Burkesville, about 30 minutes from the Tennessee home, after he was reported missing.
Investigators ruled the death of the former Sacramento-area man a homicide.
