BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WAVE 3) – While offering their support for the family of Crystal Rogers, the family of a slain mother and daughter deny any connection between the notorious unsolved cases.
The Netherlands were a mother and daughter brutally killed in their Bardstown home in April 2014. The nature of their injuries led police at the time to say the motive might have been personal.
Family members posted a message on their Facebook page:
"We would like to send our support to Sherry Ballard and her family and pray they get positive results from sharing Crystal and Tommy’s stories. There has never been any evidence that Kathy and Samantha’s deaths are linked to the three other Nelson County cases–Officer Ellis, Crystal Rogers and Tommy Ballard. As Kathy and Samantha’s family, we have no believe or knowledge that Kathy or Samantha knew any of the other parties. Kathy never taught any of their children and Samantha never babysat for any of them."
Interest is mounting in the "Bardstown Conspiracy" after the premiere of the Oxygen show "The Disappearance of Cyrstal Rogers."
The Netherland case remains unsolved, as does the murder of Officer Jason Ellis, the disappearance of Rogers and the shooting death of her father, Tommy Ballard.
