Businesses helping police in Bardstown double murder investigation

By  | 

NELSON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Some business owners are helping state police in the search for those responsible for killing a Nelson County woman and her teenage daughter.

Investigators say Kathy Netherland, 48, and Samantha Netherland, 16, were found dead in their home near Bardstown on Tuesday. Now police hope surveillance video from nearby businesses will give them new clues.

"Tuesday was a madhouse," said Ashley Smith, a co-owner of 150 Quick Stop. "Word travels fast, and everyone was coming in wanting to know like the details of what happened, like what was the motive?"

That double murder in Bardstown still has state police asking questions. Now they're hoping businesses along Springfield Road might have some answers and help out in the investigation.

"I hope we can. I hope between all the businesses up and down the road, I hope we can find who did this," said Smith. "I think it would help everyone sleep a little easier at night."

Police reached out to places, like 150 Quick Stop, for help in tracking down who's responsible for killing Kathy Netherland, who was a special education teacher and her 16-year-old daughter.

"There was one of our other employees who's been with us for several years, and she was very upset on Tuesday because she did know who they were," said Smith.

Surveillance tapes from cameras outside both 150 Quick Stop and Bardstown Auto Wrecker aren't being released as police investigate three vehicles of interest in the video.

"They spent a couple hours getting video footage from our security cameras," said Smith. "You can tell they've been working really hard on trying to find out anything. Us and the entire community are still in shock, and we're saddened by what happened, so I think everyone is kind of just concerned and scared really because you don't hear about that kind of stuff around here."

State police say they are looking at surveillance video from those businesses specifically after 8 p.m. on Monday.

Visitation for the mother and daughter will be from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday at Parkway Baptist Church in Bardstown. The funeral will be held Monday morning.
