A meth lab explosion destroyed a home and left a man laying naked outside, his clothes burned off.

McCracken County sheriff’s detectives say the explosion happened in the 5500 block of Harris Rd. on January 27th, just a few blocks away from the Chick-fil-A and Kohl’s, in an abandoned mobile home being used as a methamphetamine lab.

When emergency crews got to the scene they found a naked man, unidentified, laying in front of the mobile home. They later determined his clothes had been burned off. He was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives say the man is 25 year old Kenneth Wayne Corbit II. He is homeless and recently reported missing in Jonesboro, Arkansas. The local hospital treating him released Corbit without notifying detectives. They are now searching for him. His picture is to the left of this article. Corbit is wanted on felony charges of Burglary 3rd Degree, Criminal Mischief 1st Degree and Manufacturing Methamphetamine.

The sheriff’s department also tells us other suspects helped Corbit break into the vacant mobile home and manufacture the meth. Those people are believed to have fled the scene when the home exploded, leaving the man there, on fire.
