Every day, stories unfold that have no resolution. Unresolved is an investigative and immersive look at those stories, as host Micheal Whelan tries to determine why these stories - unsolved crimes and other unexplained phenomena - have no ending.


Bardstown - Revisited (Part Two: Kathy & Samantha Netherland)

On April 22nd, 2014 a mother and daughter from Bardstown, Kentucky are noticeably absent from work/school. 48-year old Kathy and 16-year old Samantha are rarely even late, so their absence is noted as being very unlike them.

When family is called to check in on the two Netherland ladies, it soon becomes apparent that something is wrong.

Soon, the region finds itself facing its second high-profile murder case in less than a year. This time, the targets aren't a police officer - but a special education teacher and a high school student. There is no apparent motive, but the crime seems personal...

This is the second part of a new Unresolved series, Bardstown - Revisited. I originally covered Kathy and Samantha's story back in February of 2016, but have gone back and expanded upon, rewritten, and rerecorded everything.

Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan
