Missing woman's husband and father-in-law arrested

As the search for a missing central Kentucky woman continues, police have now arrested her husband and father-in-law.

State police say the arrests were the result of information obtained through the investigation into 26-year-old Kara Rigdon's disappearance. However, the arrests are on unrelated charges.

Rigdon's husband, 26-year-old William Robert (Bobby) Rigdon, is now charged with two counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, and two counts of being a persistent felony offender.

Rigdon's father-in-law, 48-year-old William Joseph (Joey) Rigdon, Sr., is charged with arson, four counts of attempted murder, criminal mischief, and possession of destructive devices.

The arrests came as the result of indictment warrants issued by the Marion County Grand Jury.

Police are still looking for Kara Rigdon, who lives in the Gravel Switch community of Marion County. She hasn't been seen since July 17. Police say she last spoke with a family member the following day.

Police say Rigdon is white with blonde, shoulder length hair. She's 5'4", 160 pounds, and has green eyes and a dark complexion.

She has a scar on her nose, tattoos of stars and the moon on the right side of her neck, a Harley Davidson tattoo on her left ring finger, and a West Coast Choppers cross tattoo on her right ankle.

State Police are also looking for William Joseph Rigdon, Jr., who is the twin brother of William Robert Rigdon.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Kentucky State Police at 1-800-222-5555.
