Couple sought in high speed chase

The Warren County Sheriff's Office is looking for a couple after a high speed chase. Early Monday morning, Warren County Sheriff's Deputy Eric Bull noticed a gray Ford Focus sitting at the intersection of Scottsville Road and the Natcher Parkway. When he approached the car, he saw a man and woman both passed out inside. Deputy Bull says the man had drug paraphernalia in his shirt pocket. As the couple awoke, the deputy asked the passenger to run the engine off. But instead, the driver fled driving toward Bowling Green where he made a u-turn and sped south on Scottsville Road into Allen County. Warren County Sheriff's Office deputies lost sight of the vehicle near the Tennessee state line. Police are looking for a 2009 4-door gray Ford Focus with a Kentucky license plate 314-XRN. Police say the car is registered to the owner, Keith Johnson, of Adolphus, Ky.

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.

I-65 widening project nears completion.

With weather cooperating, projects designed to widen I-65 to six lanes will be complete by Christmas. The 91-mile stretch from the Tennessee line to Eliza­bethtown has been completed in phases over nearly two decades. Chris Jessie, public information officer for the Ken­tucky Transportation Cabinet’s district highway office in Elizabethtown, said a segment from Smith’s Grove to Exit 28 near the Corvette Assembly Plant was first because of needed improvements in a high-crash area. About 15 years ago, widening work started near Franklin at the state line and has been progressively moving north. The final project is the 10-mile route from Sonora to Elizabethtown’s

southern exit. Jessie also says some of the final details such as shoulder work, rumble strips and paving markers can be done with all six lanes operating.

Circuit Judge denies dismissal of civil case

A motion for dismissal has been denied for the City of Glasgow, the Barren-Metcalfe Emergency Communications Center and two boards, for their actions or inactions in response to a 991 call. Circuit Judge John T. Alexander denied the dismissal involving the death of 22 year-old Kristen Rae Edwards. Edwards' administrators filed the civil action in July, the day after Clark W. Smith pleaded guilty to murder and two other charges related to her death.  They contend the 911 center was negligent after no action was taken when they received a call from Edwards.  Circuit Judge John T. Alexander, also said that “a summary judgment motion may be proper after the parties have had time to conduct discovery.”
