BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - A community is still waiting for answers more than a week after police say a woman and her 16-year-old daughter were murdered in their Nelson County home.

Police have not made any arrests for the deaths of Kathy and Samantha Netherland.

On Thursday, hundreds of people are expected to attend a vigil for the Netherlands.

More than a week after the senseless murders of Kathy and Samantha Netherland and the town is still reeling with raw emotion.

But as the community tries to come to terms with this tragedy, they're also remembering to pay tribute to the Bardstown teacher and her teenage daughter.

On Thursday, hundreds are expected to gather outside the Nelson County Justice Center where a vigil will be held to honor the two lives lost last Tuesday and to show support for the victim's loved ones.

Thursday’s remembrance is expected to include speakers, singers and a balloon release.

This vigil is just one way the small community of Bardstown is banding together and finding strength and solace in one another during this difficult time.

“You have to continue to show the community and to show anyone who there who thinks they can get away with something like this that we aren’t going to stand for it,” said Cindy Thomas, who plans to attend the vigil.

Thursday’s vigil is open to the public and begins at 8:00 p.m.
Police are still searching for the person or persons who committed this crime.
