LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The man arrested in connection with a double homicide that’s remained unsolved for 18 years was the police department’s lead investigator in the 1994 case.
Police arrested 49-year-old Leslie Duncan of Central City, Ky. on Thursday and charged him with tampering with physical evidence in the grisly slayings of two women at a southern Kentucky massage parlor nearly two decades ago.
Duncan is being held in the Christian County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
State police Trooper Stu Recke said Friday that Duncan was the lead investigator for the Oak Grove, Ky. police in the case.
Recke called the arrest the first big step toward solving the murders, which happened at the New Life Massage Parlor in Oak Grove.
The victims were 21-year-old Candida Belt and 18-year-old Gloria Ross. They were found shot and stabbed.
