Police searching for husband of murder victim

Posted: Updated:

BOWLING GREEN, KY (WAVE) – A 1998 murder of a married woman left many questions and now police are searching for the man they believe to be the killer, her husband.

Leland Neal is the estranged husband of Carol Neal.

Carol disappeared in 1998 and police said a blood-stained couch led them to believe she had been murdered.

In 2003 police were proved right after two hikers found her skull in McCreary County.

After the discovery Carol's mother said Leland called and asked her for a favor, "He called me and he said could you bring the boys back over to your house this weekend I've got something I need to do and I can't do it with them and that was the same week that they found the skull."

Carol's mother said she believes Leland moved Carol's remains.

Police are searching for him. If you have any information on where he may be you are asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (270) 781-CLUE.
