I-65 Lane closures overnight  

Lane closures on Interstate 65 near the exit 20 interchange at I-165 (formerly William H. Natcher Parkway) in Bowling Green are expected to begin Monday night at 8:00 p.m. The lane closures are necessary so contract crews can update the signs for the I-165 designation.

The lane closures are expected to begin in the southbound direction. Once those signs are replaced lane closures may take place in the southbound direction as well. Motorists should slow down in this area and use caution as workers will be present.

KSP Investigation Leads to Indictment in 37 year Cold Case

On Wednesday, December 12th, the Warren County Grand Jury indicted Samuel Little with one count of Murder in the death of Linda Sue Boards, whose body was discovered May 15, 1981 on a farm located in Smiths Grove. In September, Post 3 Bowling Green was contacted by KSP Investigator Carolyn Nunn, Central Forensic Laboratory, in

reference to a lead received via the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (VICAP) regarding the Board murder case. VICAP is a unit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that is responsible for the analysis of serial violent and sexual crimes. Nunn advised that the VICAP database identified an individual who had committed crimes in California that matched the method in which Ms. Boards was murdered. The investigation led investigators to the Texas Rangers Division, where they learned the suspect had recently been interviewed by Ranger Jim Holland, for crimes committed in Texas. In October, KSP investigators traveled to Texas to interview the suspect regarding the Kentucky case. Information obtained during the interview led to the case being presented to the Grand Jury and the subsequent indictment. Little is currently lodged at the Wise County Texas Detention Center. No further information is available for release at this time.
