BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Fourteen years after a southern Kentucky woman went missing, police have taken out a warrant charging her estranged husband with murder.
The Daily News reports Leland Neal is charged in the death of Carol Neal, a Bowling Green social worker who was reported missing in 1998. Although Carol Neal's body has never been found, hikers found part of her skull in 2003 in a densely wooded area of the Daniel Boone National Forest known as Parker's Mountain.
Warren County Commonwealth's Attorney Chris Cohron said Leland Neal was last seen in 2008 crossing the Mexican border, and there is no record of him returning.
Cohron said after Neal traveled to Mexico additional evidence was revealed that resulted in the arrest warrant. He declined to elaborate on the evidence.
