Some Daviess Co. Jail Inmates under Quarantine after ‘Body Crab’ Found

DAVIESS COUNTY, KENTUCKY (WFIE) – Inmates in one pod of the count jail are on quarantine after a “body crab” was found.

The jailer says an inmate found the bug Tuesday. An exterminator determined it was a body crab.

Workers are deep cleaning the area and replacing several mattresses now. The pod holds 30 male inmates.

The quarantine is expected to be lifted sometime Thursday.
