Oglesby man killed in Kentucky

An Oglesby man was found shot to death in a car early Friday night in Henderson, Ky., authorities reported.

Devin La'Tre Fields, 21, was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after Henderson police received a call about a shooting about 5:30 p.m. at an apartment complex. His death is being treated as a homicide, police spokeswoman Jennifer Richmond said.

No arrests had been made as of Monday afternoon, she said. The death remains under investigation.

Fields' Facebook page indicated he was in a relationship with a woman who listed herself as formerly of La Salle and currently of Chicago.

In one post on Saturday, the woman wrote, "I appreciate everyone's concern, but for now, I would like to be left alone. Devin is gone and he was my world. There's no words left to be said."

In another, she said, "How can I live without you? How can I breathe without you? Why did God take you so soon? We haven't truly lived yet."

Henderson is a town of nearly 30,000 along the Ohio River, just across from Indiana.

According to the federal crime reports, Henderson reported three murders and nonnegligent homicides from 2012 to 2016. Henderson's violent crime rate is considerably lower than the national average, according to city-data.com.
