Kentucky’s former unemployment director found dead

McNamara

LEXINGTON - The former director of Kentucky’s unemployment insurance program was found dead Sunday. Muncie McNamara was 39.

According to The Register's news partners at WKYT, McNamara died “after a battle with chronic depression,” according to his obituary.

McNamara joined the Gov. Andy Beshear administration in early 2020. He was fired in May of that year following a record number of jobless claims due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In testimony before state lawmakers two months later, McNamara said he was scapegoated and fired without cause.
