BARDSTOWN, KY (WAVE) - Several unanswered questions remain after a mother and daughter were found murdered in their Nelson County home. Officers said the bodies of Kathy Netherland, 48, and Samantha Netherland, 16, were found on April 21 by a family member who came to check on them.
"This is something that you couldn't even imagine in your wildest imaginations, nightmares that something like this would ever happen, especially in a community this small," said Amy Kellem, a close friend and co-worker of Kathy Netherland. "She was in school the day before like all the rest of us, and the next day she's gone."
Aside from her career, Kathy Netherland was a proud mother of two daughters who were described as great students by fellow teachers. The girls had gone through the loss of their father to cancer less than a year ago.
