Kentucky State Police are continuing their investigation into the death of a young Bedford woman, 24-year-old Angela Long, whose remains were found in the mobile home residence of her father at 34 Kenlee Drive in south Trimble County.

Dispatchers at the KSP Post 5 in Campbellsburg received a call at 4:58 a.m. Wednesday from Robert L. Baldwin III, advising that he had outstanding warrants against him and wanted to turn himself in, according to Trooper Brad Arterburn, Public Information Officer for KSP Post 5. Baldwin then made a startling confession, Arterburn said.

"He said he had hurt someone and they were possibly deceased," Arterburn said.

Troopers en route to the scene found Baldwin walking to turn himself in. He was taken into custody and police arrested him on the outstanding warrants, which included charges for domestic violence, assault, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

After speaking with Baldwin, troopers went
 to the home on Kenlee Drive, located off Wilbur Wilson Road, and discovered the body of Long in the home of her father, Stanley Long. The Trimble County Coroner's officer was summoned and pronounced Long dead at the scene. The remains were removed to the State Medical Examiner's office in Louisville where an autopsy to determine cause of death was scheduled Thursday.

According to Arterburn, Angela Long's residence was located on U.S. 42W in Pendleton.

Baldwin, 25, was said to be from Louisville but had spent enough time in Trimble County that the KSP referred to him as "a Trimble County man."

Baldwin was booked into the Carroll County Detention Center in Carrollton at 7:54 a.m. Wednesday, according to CCDC records.

Questioning of the suspect continued through the day, Arterburn said late Wednesday afternoon. Baldwin was eventually charged with the murder of Long Wednesday evening.

No motive for the crime has been determined at this time. KSP Detective Tim Moore is leading the ongoing investigation.
