BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State Police investigators are seeking the identity of potential suspects in the murder of a Nelson County woman and her daughter.

KSP released a surveillance image Monday of a black Chevrolet Impala seen traveling north on U.S. 150 from Botland into Bardstown near the time of the murders.

Investigators say 48-year-old Kathy Netherland and her 16-year-old daughter, Samantha, were murdered in their home Monday, April 21, around 8 p.m.

According to a press release, KSP believes the occupants of the black Impala captured on surveillance are suspects in the murders of the elementary teacher and her daughter.

"Just everybody's still tore up, it's been almost a week now, nobody for sure knows what's going on," said neighbor Eddie Osborne.

The double homicide has sent a shock wave through the area.

The Netherlands were found dead inside their own home on Tuesday, April 22, a day after investigators believe they were killed.

Police have asked nearby businesses to turn over surveillance video.

The Impala appears to have been captured from gas station's cameras. Authorities say two other vehicles they originally wanted to know about have been cleared.

"Everybody wants to help. You can assume that," Osborne said.

The new information comes on the same day as the funeral for the Netherlands. Kathy was a special education teacher and Samantha was a sophomore in the Bardstown City School system.

Neighbors tell us until someone is held responsible for their deaths, the community will remain scared.

"Looks like they're getting closer and I hope soon we hear something," Osborne said.

State Police say the car year could range from a 2006 to 2013 model. The vehicle is black and the windows do not appear to be tinted.

Anyone with information should call Kentucky State Police Post 4 in Elizabethtown at 270-766-5078.
