Home where Nelson county family murdered being sold to settle family's estate

Posted: Updated:
NELSON COUNTY, Ky. (WDRB) -- The house where a mother and daughter were brutally murdered is up for sale.

The home belonged to Kathy and Samantha Netherland and it is now going to be sold at auction next week. The money will be used to help settle the family's estate and anyone interested in buying it will get a chance to look inside it this weekend.

Ted Bray is the auctioneer. He has sold hundreds of homes at auction.

"This is the first time," said Bray, with Bray Auction Services, LLC.

But even though this is not your average home auction, Bray explained "We have a job to do and that's to sell the property and to try to get the most out of it for the family and the estate and that's what we're going to do."

The home at 5120 Springfield Road in Nelson County will be sold at auction on November 1st. It was also the site of a burtal murder. In April of this year, a family member discovered the bodies of Kathy Netherland and her daughter Samantha inside.

"We were contacted by the administrators for the estate to sell the auction...or sell the property at auction in order to help settle the estate," said Bray.

Earlier this week, WDRB spoke to Kathy Netherland's sister about the home.

"I can't tell you how many people be like...'I drive by your sister's house all the time,'" said Stacey Hibbard, Netherland's sister.

After 6 months, Hibbard recently returned to the home and says the family is ready to let it go.

"It was much more peaceful than I expected, I felt like I was going to go in there and it was going to be some big evil, dark, gloomy...and you know, it wasn't."


Kentucky State Police are still investigating the case, but don't need the home.

Trooper Jeff Gregory said, "Because whatever we had of evidentiary value in there, we've already taken and we've gone through the house and gotten what we need...so we are comfortable with that."

Police still need help finding this black Chevy Impala captured on video leaving the scene.

"We are quite certain that that is the vehicle in question that carried the people to this residence and if we can figure out where that car is when we think we can put it all together," said Gregory.

Meanwhile, the house may still be shrouded in mystery but there will be full disclosure at the sell.

There will be an open house this Sunday from 2 until 4 and the auction will be held on Saturday, November 1st.

"We'll disclose everything that we know about the property, correct," said Bray.
