    wow, too bad there isn't more interest in this case here at WS. It is going to get solved and then folks will get interested, I bet. Not so sure daughter was the target in my theory, but thanks to those of you who have kept this one going. They all deserve justice.

    i just hope LE has gone through the computers and phones at the house, which is SP, but there has got to be something in there....i know some of your thoughts went directly to the daughter and the prom. Im not so sure the prom, but i agree the daughter was likely the main target. Possible SO?

    I really thought the murders would be solved quickly. I hope LE gets some help from another agency if they can't solve it.

    6 months and no arrest. No motive, have not found who owns the black car. The crime was violent but not saying cause of deaths. The home is now for sale. Who could be so angry with one or both of them?

    Family members say Samantha was beaten and her throat was slashed. Kathy was shot. Their bodies were found the next day.

    Police say no one has been ruled out in the investigation. Anyone who's seen a 2006 to 2013 Impala, similar to the one in the surveillance photo, is asked to call Kentucky State Police Post 4 in Elizabethtown at 270-766-5078.

    The home is to be auctioned.

    "Were gonna have the open house this coming Sunday from 2-4 to let people view the property and answer any questions that they may have," Ted Bray, the auctioneer, said.

    The black impala:
    "Or maybe even a dark blue, we have been through thousands and thousands of black Impala trying to vet out different cars and to see if any of those have been involved. We have not come up with the vehicle just yet," Gregory said.

    I'm curious about why LE seems so set on that particular car. There were two other directions the killer could have easily driven. Based on Google Street Views, it appears to be a rather busy road so I suspect a lot of people drive past.

    Attached is one Street View that even shows a similar car driving past the house.

    Also attached is a Street View showing the house (at left) and a liquor store practically across the street. Doesn't that store have cameras? It's a new store because Street Views from the side street show an older building in that location, instead.

    The surveillance photo came from a convenience mart about a half-mile up the road from the house. A lot of truckers park there which shows that it is a major road. The Street View is attached below. It's easy for me to imagine a trucker deciding he wanted some alcohol and walking down the road rather than hassling with taking his truck. Or even some random person asking clerks where a liquor store was located and then somehow getting involved.

    Thanks for the google images JohnTate. The truck parking and liquor store could be starting points. Or maybe the killer was a neighborhood teen who walked to the crime scene. Looks like there are many homes nearby.

    How sad that this hasn't been solved yet. I was reading through Kathy's (the mother) FB page. It looks like Samantha and her boyfriend (WB) had not been together long. On 4/13 all three of them went to Colonial Day's and the older sister makes a comment about not knowing her little sister had a boyfriend. He asked her to prom on 4/16.

    I found this quote from this article interesting:
    "To be as just completely brutal as they were to Samantha, you can't imagine that somebody just said, 'Oh, let's go do that," Hibbard said when asked if she believes the murders were random.

    I know everyone is thinking a teenage girl jealous over a boy but what about a jealous boy? Is it possible she turned someone down? She had just returned from a chorus trip to Florida (April 6-10).

    KY - Kathy, 48, & Samantha Netherland, 16, murdered, Botland, 21 April 2014

    This week marks six months since a mother and her teenage daughter were murdered in their Kentucky home and still, police are no closer to solving the case than they were on day one.

    Kathy Netherland, a 48-year-old elementary school teacher, and her 16-year-old daughter Samantha were found slain in their Botland home on April 22. Investigators say the two were killed around 8 p.m. the night before.

    My guess is that the liquor store's cameras may have caught the car entering and exiting the family's driveway. From the angle though, I bet the house blocked the view of person or persons getting in and out of the car.

    Nothing new except they did find a buyer for the home during the auction. It was sold for $41,350 by Bray Auction Services. The company would not release who purchased the house.

    A new plea for leads, LE still feels the suspect drove a newer model, black Chevy Impala. LE says the suspect may not own the car...

    But police say a database shows there are more than 20,000 black Chevy Impalas in the state. They say the one in the photo is from 2012 or 2013.

    "In my heart, I feel like it probably was somebody they opened the door to and had no idea that they were opening the door to something that was evil, brutal, vicious, unkind. The complete opposite of them," Kathy's sister Stacey Hibbard told WDRB in Sept. 2014.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Kentucky State Police 1-800-222-5555.

    Two puzzling cases in a small town in less than a year, it is... puzzling. I do not think this case and Jason Ellis murder are related, but we can not completely rule out

    It is painful to see the size of the reward, but it is likely more than they can afford. We can help by keeping this post alive.

    Has anyone read something about dogs and cats? By her facebook it seems she had two dogs and at least two cats at home. Strange that nothing has been said of animals.
