The body was found last Sunday afternoon by cavers who crawled through an underground passage in the Wyandotte area of the Harrison Crawford State forest.
Authorities offered to speculation on the case of death, but they believe that Kevin left a main passageway and went into a nearly hidden, seldom-traveled section of a cave about a half-mile from the main entrance from Scotts Hill Road.
Although positive identification need to be made by the medical examiner’s office for positive identification, there was no doubt by Conservation offices that the body was of Kevin’s. Articles were found near the body that matched articles that Kevin bought at a Corydon store.
Rand Heazlitt, a caver, along with other cavers, was able to use tools to retrieve the body and move it closer to the cave entrance. The body was lifted to the surface that evening.
Kevin Eve’s BMW has been found in the Crawford State Forest near Leavenworth, Indiana prompting a search.
Keve was a spelunker and liked searching caves. but his cave exploration equipment was found at his home. There is speculation that Eve went to that location to look for caves to explore in the future and may have gotten lost.
Searchers have found Walmart bags with receipts and items like candy bars, and cadaver dogs have alerted on something in the caves.
The authorities have focused on the area near Eve’s car and they will be resuming the search on Thursday.
If you have any information on Eve’s whereabouts, please call 812-685-2498,
