Kentucky State Police Trooper Chad Gregory responded to a call to Baptist Hospital Corbin in reference to a two-year-old child being treated for severe burns.


Trooper Gregory spoke with the child’s mother, 21-year-old Sierra P. Shepherd, of Knox County. Trooper Gregory reported Shepherd made several statements that were inconsistent with other reports made to medical staff and a social worker. Shepherd reportedly changed her mind and offered to tell the truth.
