Domestic dispute ends in apparent suicide

Versailles police were called to 113 Merewood Drive around 11 p.m. Monday to investigate an alleged domestic violence incident. Lt. Michael Fortney said Sara Jane Bledsoe told police her husband, James G. Bledsoe, 42, had been drinking and thought he intended to harm himself. When officers arrived, she and a daughter were in the front yard, and they heard a gunshot.

The Versailles Police Department's Special Response Team was called to the scene and was soon joined by a Kentucky State Police special operations unit, which brought a robot.

At 2:40 a.m., they found James Bledsoe in the back yard of the home, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot. Sara Bledsoe and her daughter were unharmed.

The investigation continues.
