The what is sewing like there for someone who is just a regular Person that loves to out for us. I had this great experience. When i talked with a woman who lives in nigeria. And she told me about her sewing saying which was very different than mine here in the states and i was curious about how that worked for you as well. Do you. Just go to the store and buy patterns and by fabric is there a market is there. Are there lots of fabric stores. Are they very few people interested in garment sewing or is it more of a different style of crap. That people are doing there. Yeah there's there's of stores stores. They're not so much anymore Sewing scene is also nothing much. I noticed said because of the condemning. A lot of people are starting to pick up sewing again so it's beginning to become more and more popular. There are a couple of good stores which are here. We are quite old stores but it serves a finding better me. No not so much. I find most Tonight and i guess it's interesting to me that you that there's not that many patterns because it makes me wonder at least as i was talking with the woman from a previous episode. She did not learn to so with patterns. She learned to sew with with measurements. So i thought that it really gives you a different set of skills. And i thought it gave you even a bit more confidence like similarly your As you explain that of european patterns do not have same allowances which allows you to make adjustments to the pattern before you add those and it just gives you a whole different set of skills than what we what we get here who have a enter magazines. The verda a few french magazines american veterans. Then you have to really go to a fabric store. You can get them there with the what i seeing seeing with. You have so many choices. No it's interesting sorry is it. it's okay. It's interesting to me. Because what i'm realizing after talking to so many so as from around the world in different places is that at least here in the us with us being released. I can't speak for myself as someone who learned so with a bunch of patterns the big four pattern company and now more independent companies which have the benefit of reaching an international audience when the media. That's one another great thing about pd. i feel as though out. It encourages a type of dependency. At least for me i have. I don't know. I might have seven hundred commercial patterns in my house right now. I'm pretty sure i do. I'm pretty sure. And i think seven hundred is probably a low estimate because i can buy them when they're a dollar or two dollars or now the sale might be four dollars or three dollars so they are very. They're plentiful there widely available. They're not that expensive. If i want to sizes of a pattern. I'll just by two patterns at the three dollar to dollar sale. But which but what. I get inconvenienced though i feel like i've lost in certain essential skills. I understand right. Yeah so like you know how to do. Adjustments and measurement how to do adjustments. You know how to make these changes how to get things to fit on your body. I tend to just by the patterns. Size that i think is going to fit the best and then i might tweak it a little bit but there's a lot that i don't know how to do because i never really had to learn it and so that's one of the things i appreciate about learning the way that people so around the world because everyone is getting different. We're all doing the same thing with but we're just doing it in a d. Yeah in a different way. Yeah i was raised with the idea that i always have to adjust the better so even though i buy better i always have to adjust make adjustments to make it fit better yet so i never use a veteran straight out of the envelope. I always make some adjustments check ahead to fit my size that it and that's the smart way. That's the smart way to do it. If i think is such a good way. I've started to be a little bit better about that and i think it helps me also to tell a different story. I think that something that one of the things that i learned from you. Vanessa is based on what you learn if you started sewing and so i always have to adjust the pattern. You don't have an emotional attachment to that. At least maybe you do. I don't know but for me out if someone like me who is trained to say. Okay just by the pattern and so the pattern and the pattern will fit or not fit that very limited training or that. Very limited approach to pattern wearing pattern sewing. It can say it can. It can wear on. You can wear on some people's like self esteem or self image. If they feel like instead of the pattern being broken the pattern being limited you turn this against your own body. And that i think is one of the most very tragic and sad thing when people are sowing in such a way that says ono. The pattern is correct. I need to make sure that. I squeezed myself into these things. That really aren't meant to fit me. In so i think having the skills of adjustment really make a big difference there they really do. I wanted to pivot a bit and talk a bit in about your approach or your thoughts on african print fabrics. I know we've talked about this a little bit before. But i'm really interested in that story and i know i'm not sure if it how many folks know the story of how like when you see if you buy some african fabric to they'll say dutch wax prints on the or it'll say holland is often marked on the sides of these fabrics. Some of the major companies that are in this industry have been in the industry for hundreds of years. It hasn't been that long hundred seventy five years. A hundred seventy five years so about fiscal And yes and so. These folks are known as the superstars of african print fabrics and it's a dutch company based in the netherlands. And it's interesting because it seems like the story of the dutch involvement in african pin- fabrics. Art is it. I don't know how well known it is. I i know about it but i don't know how well known. It is more broadly. So can you tell us a little bit about how the as a dutch woman. I think he had this great attachment to the history. So can you talk a bit about the history of the dutch involvement in african fabrics. Like where that all started in came from sure's soda companies started in eighteen forty six than its fiscal end. Its base here in helmand to this about an hour and a half away from my house in. They started with the making imitation. Batik fabric in boutique is the tradition of making a wax. Rx assisted dyed fabric in. They do that in indonesia. Hundreds of years ago was not in asia. It was the dutch. East indies interest colonize and that sometimes people forget when they tell the story of Going to the nisha. The dutch were really good and imitating the boutique. But they were not as good as the and it's like. Why do we want to buy from you. We are indonesian and we have our own ancestral practices of making the fabric. So why would we wanna buy that from your cheaper. That's true but not better. And also they protected their markets against imitation in february coming from outside. So that's why they didn't really start in that industry that watch so then they were looking for a different market in around the same thing. There's the legend of the bombay heat. Tom and those were around. Three hundred thousand mostly ghanaian recruits recruited by the dutch to fight in the colonial in asia and Men when they went back to west regarding to them about teak fabric and it was around the same time started to sell also but in the west africa. So that's also the ghanaian soldiers who were there as part of the colonial army to help support the dutch in the east indians when they return home to ghana they brought some of the fabric with them or did they do they bring the fabric with them or did they just say this is what we saw that. So essentially brought fabric with them when returned and the story goes. That's how a dutch got the idea to sell their batiks because they saw it was getting Soldiers and beyond honest. We still don't know if they were enslaved or like free soldiers or free. Right right insulated. The strange history or not strangest three. It's the trying to figure out what actually happened there. But with in either case this was it's an interesting story about global expansion and imperialism slash colonialism and like using african soldiers to help the dutch keep control of indonesia or what they call the dutch east indies so these different connections and is different relationships which are which we might understand in one way on a global political scale or geopolitical scale actually also influence fabric and the fabric that we by which is such such an interesting story. So you're so now so what's going on today. Is there a long. Has i know. I'm sure a lot happens. Of course one hundred and seventy five years. But what's what are you. What are.

Insurance isn't actually necessary to ensuring health. Health insurance equality. The position at healthcare now takes of course is that this is not true publicly funded. An administered system is the only way to quickly deliver healthcare but proponents of you know existing corporate healthcare. The existing corporate healthcare system will say. Well you know. Look at a system like the netherlands which is run by private insurance companies Box earlier. This year published an article about the netherlands. Healthcare system titled the netherlands has universal health insurance. And it's all private. And i felt that description was was glossing over some important differences. If not just outright raw ben you want to introduce our guest. Yes and. I can't wait until we can actually take a field trip to the netherlands.

It's also has many more organized and sometimes very well organized stakeholders that can torch and local governments proposals and it's a matter of life in this you'd headlines every day so it's it's it's exciting to work in healthcare and i was hired At a time to be extinct secretary of the committee to implement the latest round of Depor forums proposed in late nineteen eighty s that.

I saw I did watch a video but I did see a a a picture of a guy. No, no, no. No. No, I don't like seafood. I like onions so I know for me I also like onions but that combination when something slithers down your one things that you guys are also famous for and might not be you off. But never the love of licorice apparently is a thing over there. Yes. I hated actually, but it's something that most people indeed love to do when I remember when I was in a Kinder no, Primary School Primerica. Yeah, we needed to do like a talk about one of your favorite subjects and presented to the class and the world that did her talk about her. She said everybody loves Liberation. I was like raising my finger. Yeah, it's also a tradition and it comes in both salty flavor. Yes labor, and then you can also add other stuff to it. And it's a real treat for most people that live here. Yeah. Well I'm with you saying with seafood same with licorice that is not paying for me. So so what are some uniquely Neverland foods that you do enjoy? Well, the thing that I really enjoy is called a stroke baffle. So that mean that you have a very thin biscuit to actually an in-between and there's a layer of dead. I know exactly what you're talking about. But is it no, go ahead. I think know who you're talking about its Lair of hard Insurance like maple syrup done not liquid anymore, but a little bit hardened and then it becomes like a cookie and that is just delicious. It's one of my absolute favorites in the Netherlands so long. It's a very very yes, very, can you spell it out for me real quick. It's a stroke. So s t r o p o p. Yes. Yes.

Like hob, I've never seen this it looked fancy. The packaging was definitely fancy-looking and I had it and was like, oh so good. Oh, man. So yes, I've only had that one but either my wife or the frame we had over said they sell them, you know at some other store down the road. So I definitely want I don't want to get addicted cuz those May woo. Yeah and here is another ones you can also get them warm. So then they are liquid and that's even better. You know, the gold ones are already fantastic but the warm ones who should be making me hungry man. We're going to get lunch. So I'm hungry. Yeah, like I said the other but she delivered overseas. Right? Right. I see my address not take a month or so. It won't be warm by a so so what what kind of like regular cuz that's technically like a deserve or snack thing. Correct? Yes.

"But yeah, it's a know that because of That the royal family winning its independence for the Netherlands is how the whole world got orange carrots. That's just that's a cool little thing to have ya know for your country. You are worldwide. Now even if people don't know it. Yeah, even if people don't know it footprint exactly huge footprint man, cuz I guarantee you if I was to pull any off of American off the street, you know, where orange carrots come from they wouldn't they wouldn't know a thing Supermarket. Yeah, exactly the ground what do you mean guys? Like no, no, no, let me tell you something. I was also looking into strange laws or at least it's going to be strange compared to us, right cuz for you guys, were you born and raised in Netherlands? It's it's it's just the world you live in before me someone on the outside. It's going to be a very unique thing. They are everyone knows of Amsterdam. And the stuff you can do over there. I'm not going to get into that but there is a lot of stuff that yes, you can't do over there that probably some people think is legal. It's not I'm just going to say that right now. That's nothing like beer I don't do either of those anyway, so I'm not worried about that but one of the unique things and it says it's not really enforced but house share wage is illegal. Yes. Can you explain as to why cuz I'm reading three or more people is technically not allowed. Yes. It has to do both with safety package. So it depends on how big the house is and how many taxes you have all depends on if you own the house yes or no because the bank has a say in how many people can live in it and you cannot rent it out or share it with people that you asked money to share your house with so you can live obviously with your girlfriend or your boyfriend or your spouse and your children that regards you can share your house. There's actually the laws in place to prevent overcrowding and Back event you renting your house out.

"In December celebrate on December 5th of our work if I recall right off but we as Americans we Coca-Cola changed it took inspiration from Santa Claus and his how we have today Santa Claus over here. So what is can you speak on a little bit about the origins and the difference is cuz I'm assuming, you know about Santa Clara no Santa Claus for this point right off the difference between Santa Claus and Santa Claus well originally and that's also where the discussion is over right now in the Netherlands, but originally I'm from Saint Nick. Yes, Nick was protection Saint and it had to do with slaves. And if you had been bad then they threatened to put you into a bag and if yep Been good. You would be rewarded. So it was a system to keep the slaves into place and make them do whatever you wanted to do. Basically, that's how it originally started. And that's also why same since our class is white and then yes, we call them black Petes. They are black obviously because those were slaves and that's also the discussion that's now going on break it racist but for us it has nothing to do anymore with slavery and racism is to tradition for children since the class is really a children fast facts about who's been naughty and who's been nice. So that's a very big parallel to Santa Claus. Yeah, and it's also the gifts that come into the bags and then that are presented from the bag and Since the class doesn't come to a chimney he comes through the door, but he takes a speech with him his helpers and they they they they may throw candy at the children. Okay, then presents. Yeah, and that's where it's originally from. So the differences are that he doesn't have a sleigh he writes a big white horse. Okay? Okay Thomas with a steamboat another flying sled really? Okay cool doesn't go through the chimney the door. All right. So, oh go ahead with children are being asked to put their shoe in front of the fireplace. So that's into class can put their gifts in the shoe and they also leave a carrot for his horse. I'm assuming that's how when America changed it into Santa Claus wear stockings and came from cuz you know, it's usually you hang stockings on the mantle of the fireplace off.

"Okay. So, how is it is that does? I'm assuming it does have a few roads though, right? That's definitely that's why I didn't click immediately. Yes, but with canals do the people I would assumed in a majority of you if you're from there and you live in in that town that cars aren't really a thing. It's the boats you would assume so but that's not the case with all major cities. I think in the west of the Netherlands they have canals like Amsterdam and also delve than half. Most of them have the canals and off but goats are really expensive. But especially if you that you need to put in the boats and makes it only available to the very select and Rich. So most people don't own a boat because I just cannot afford it so that mean they're either the bike. Yeah. Yes. That's the number one way yourself in the Netherlands. Yes. I think what's neat article said you guys have more bikes and people and you said it's like Seventeen million people than that more than that in Mike's and it's crazy wage. I mean it is green cuz I do know an article recently came out that is it's either already happened or projected to happen that wind power over. The Netherlands is going to power virtually if not all of the public transportation coming up soon. Like I think it might have been 20 21 wrestle reject. So in that aspect you guys are probably well ahead of any other country in the world definitely the city where I am living which so our them we are very special because as the only city in the Netherlands, we still have a trolley system that means that are buses connected to an electricity line and they run solely on electricity off the it used to be in a lot of cities, but our name is the only one that still has the old system. So running buses on electricity is already a very old concept hear ya dead. Yeah, there was another thing I was looking at of. I want to say it's another thing that they're trying to pass in the Netherlands in like the next few years where gasoline might not be gasoline, but that's definitely diesel. Do remember being considered diesel cars are going to be banned. Yes Nationwide. So that leaves I'm guessing bikes obviously a huge mode over there, but can't afford boats. And then what is it going to be like electrical cars? And is there some other mode that you guys have? I don't I didn't look at cars in the Netherlands actually run on benzene. So they don't use diesel diesel as more for countries that are bigger because unique do a lot of miles. You know, I think from Amsterdam to Germany. It's might be 150 kilometers and I'm from the south of the Netherlands until the top. I think we all kilometers and then you've had the entire country. So we don't drive large distances. So these ol is only used by people who are on the road a lot because otherwise it's not economical because the road actually says you need to pay we road taxes are astronomically higher for diesel cars than they are for Benzene cars. So most of our cars run on Benzene and they won't be banned but the up comes the the uprising of electrical cars is huge here in the Netherlands. Yes. Benzene what? What does that? Yeah, it's how do you explain it in. You called Benzene in Italian. It's been Xena. It's hooked up if it's gasoline from what I just okay? Okay. Okay. Got you. you. Yes. All right. So whether things I looked into that I've known about to an extent but never really dived much into it is the Christmas Christmas tradition of Center Claus. So we here in America the Christmas edition but separate we yes, so.

"So CDs video tapes, I think cassette tapes as well and you guys partner with Sony on all of those and and come across come across with the invention of all thoughts. So if you think of modern music as we know it is all thanks the people from the Netherlands which is kind of cool. I love that but also beer, you know heinicke is one of the most famous song. It's across the world and it's also very touched it. I don't drink beer so it's not something I would look into it. Yeah. and the only thing I know and I looked into it and apparently it was not as frowned upon I guess as a tourist if I was to go over there and starts gibbering off cuz for a long time I thought Amsterdam was in Germany, he's not and if I was to have gone over there and like mentioned that The Dutch and the Germans don't like to be compared to one another at all. Which and I can only imagine it happens quite often cuz here I was before this thinking for a long time. I actually have a very funny story about that. Oh, yes, I went to Madera and I rented a room at somebody else's house through Airbnb wage. And when I arrived the guy told me I asked her from Germany and the other guy renting a room here is also from Germany. So you will get along famously and then the other guide came and he turned out to be so we were neither German German both. Yeah, like I've had so many interviews and I have some wind up with people from various countries and parts of Europe. And I keep forgetting that there's so many countries in Europe. Yeah, just because you're from one. Does it mean you know anything about the country over and buy Samsung so there's obviously a huge difference. But yeah, like growing up out. I don't know if it's how I Amsterdam is portrayed in American, you know T's and movies or maybe just maybe being ignorant. I don't know. I always just assumed now, it's just assumed Amsterdam was in Germany and Netherlands. I always related wage jobs would never ends, which I know is a big tourist type of souvenir thing that you guys have, but another thing is tulips yes boss is huge over Netherlands and they're not originally from there. No, that's right. They are important. Yes. Yes down from, Georgia. So wouldn't you lose usually what issues negatives were brought in from during the Ottoman Empire days Alice. I learning about Ottoman Empire months, but looking at that and then yeah, you see like you has guys have flower festivals and all this kind of stuff..

Okay so tell me about the characteristics of millennials. In the Netherlands. Well, it's probably very similar. <hes> we are we millennials. Because we got handed everything to us right.

"For the five year anniversary of their murders earlier this year. The family released a statement five years been hiding. We feel loss of Kathy and Samantha. Day Town eases the pain but the land in our hearts with their patsy. Is We love you miss them. More than words can never describe whoever ended their lives should not be furry. Is there anything that you want. The public know about this case to keep their eyes out for or something like that. Sometimes if you're like in beatty they did horse but I just no matter how small of a if someone's got information on how small they think it is all able won't matter. You never know the smallest things sometimes break. The Bee's dams out there so come forward. Let us now I never heard and that's that's something we've constantly thrown out there to the public and we appreciate the public tale that we have gone through this people concern. We tell we can tell that from the calls. People want this solved and and that's It says a lot about the community over there. They're good people there and they deserve justice over there. Should they have any fear. I don't I wouldn't. I don't want to speculate of anything like that but no I I. I don't think that it's just it's a tragedy. I mean that's all you can say about it. I mean having three open cases on our part the the reason I ask is you know obviously there's been a lot of coverage of these cases. Do you think it's unusual to have so many in high profile cases in such a small area I don't really want to I don't really want to go on that lamb and say that it's disheartening and it's in our post district in so we want to we wanna solve them and concerning. I mean I it is concerning that. That's it's happened in one community and you have three the SP alone is marquis. It is concerning but people don't need to be scared. there's good people and they want it solved in any of these cases or four in all of them. Do you think it's someone local. That's living within the community. We're not ready that we one thing hanging in investigations. You don't WanNa pigeonhole yourself in trying to focus on one area in lose sight of the bigger picture he wanted to thank thank outside the box so we don't like to say that want to pigeonhole ourselves and just focus. Maybe this is the one area. We want to keep wide. I guess a wide angle that look at all possible options when it comes specs. Where are you at each case. Would you say well. I've been asked that before and and really the the only answer in the most refined answer I can give you is one step closer from yesterday. I mean we're just one one step closer. I do step in there and talk to these guys. He's detectives every so often and there's ever day they're just sitting back there and doing they are working on this case and that makes me feel good because it makes me feel like well. You know what one step closer or better off today than we were yesterday just as Jason Allison Ellis's case rumors swirl around the small town but who would kill a mother and daughter who were such pillars of their community and the way in which they were killed. Was it a personal national attack a cousin who lived maybe about fifty yards from their house about six weeks after it happened. There was a knock on the door and officers wanted to know if this vehicle had been there. They knocked on the door of the House across the street and ask asked why. There's a young man living in this house. Do you think he might be selling drugs or you think he might be responsible and illegal activities. It was like they were trying to look for a suspect ex- bright there I think if they were pudding suggestions you know in into the ears of the neighbors it's like they didn't have any evidence these three murders and no suspects but the deadly crimewave was far from over in Bardstown fifteen months after Kathy and Samantha Netherland were found found murdered inside their home and two years after Jason Ellis was ambushed on his way home a new tragedy would strike another Bardstown family this time unfortunate July weekend. If you have any information in the murders of Kathy Samantha Netherland call the Kentucky State Police at two seven. Oh seven six six five oh seventy next time on Bardstown. I know my daughter and yeah I know. She would never just up and left her family. She would or not left me and her daddy either say type of everything but unless what happened to you you know you get up with the morning goes with it. It's never never off your mind..

"Like it's. It's sad you know it kind of gets lost in a lot of the coverage. I think a lot of that is because of the way the family has handled it in the family. You just wants to keep it private. I spoke to Kathy's sisters on the fifth anniversary history of it and they said that they grieve just as much as anyone else and they understand the way that other people these other families have handled their cases but in their situation and their situation is very different they they've handled it their way and that's kind of Trau- closer together an inward word rather than outward Scotty sharp members responding to the Netherland home that Spring Day just one month before the one year Iran Averse Serie of officer Jason Ellis murder just a few miles off the bluegrass parkway. He makes his way down. Stephen Foster Boulevard passing the church where Jason's Jason Funeral was held and layers upon layers of cornfields before arriving at the Netherlands home just across the street from beverage carry out did go to the scene but I mainly went and did interviews around the community I'm trying to the information is a detective on that particular. The case of course had the interviews some of the family members you know and I and during that time with those family members yes I got to learn a lot about Taffy and Samantha. You know what kind of people they were and they were good people and they highly of the community and so you know that was in my heart broke for for for their family was extremely difficult. Cathy was a teacher. They're in in Bardstown. That's actually how they got reported the someone to go check on. She didn't show up to work then that next morning warning and she's highly thought of the Henry she had recently lost her husband to fight with cancer and so they were still creating over that and it had been tough on a two girls and Kathy as well. you know fan during during that process of those interviews. Samantha was highly intelligent young lady. She was getting ready to go to prom I'm looking forward that she got her prom dress and everybody was her family was excited for four. Har- and so he was again at heartbreaking absolutely heartbreaking. The family has been pretty private over the years. We reached out to Holly Netherland Millions Cathy's older daughter but she declined to be interviewed but she did speak to the media briefly right after they were killed and now what to know why why would somebody go and attack my system. Why would somebody shoot my mother. They'd like to stay low key and and we were we respect that they were always in constant communication with him. Our detectives are so and they it's been really really supportive. KS Fee in this process and they are good people I can't sing much praised about him as much supported that they are. You know sometimes families in it's understandable well sometime if the case goes along and it's not solved you know they get their doubts. There's there's concerns some criticism awesome sometimes and they never been like that and they're just really nice good people of course are opposed to this is a tough time in. I mean they're still dealing with it. Every day. We kind of hit roadblocks with their case alive just because because family doesn't WanNa talk but also because not a lot of people seem to know much about the case. Is there anything more that you can kind of. Tell us you you know one of the toxin. The town that we've heard is it seemed really personal against Samantha. Is that something that you the foul again. It's still an ongoing this station in in when I say that it's done. I'm trying to throw roadblocks to you. It's there's there's things things that in all of these cases that we want to as we say keep close to the chest the reason why we do that is because we we get tips and leads every day and we had to follow up so we have to find out which ones are are legitimate tips and which ones are way out in left field if you know what I mean I think it's it's out there. It was brutal. You know the the he was a a bad scene. I I don't know how much other way I can say that I it was but I I'm not. We're not ready to say that you know it was a a personal or anything like that. You know that sometimes you hear that in cases. I don't think we want to go there yet. but it was bad you know it was a very gruesome saying oh there's been very little evidence made public public but the scene did hold one clue that police followed up on we were looking for a new model around twelve to thirteen fourteen eighteen model and power at the time black and pal and that was the reason why is because we had saw some some footage on some security cameras in the area and we felt like that car potentially heads someone that knew maybe it might seen something. Nyan area or mud actually been participated in the crown. We don't know but we were looking for employees compound. We look for long term but but they've never located that car or it's driver the police ask them that for. They told me that the police asked him night and they said they couldn't. They couldn't think of anything and it just vanished managed. I mean they had it from what I understand. They had images from different as you travel along Springfield road different businesses that have these yeah they have surveillance cameras as you head toward the Bluegrass Parkway but somewhere bluegrass parkway cards disappears and they're we're not able to find any evidence where it went. They just know it was headed towards Bluegrass Parkway mother daughter. I mean they weren't caught up in anything bad. They were you know actually do gooders in the community farce yes during the course of our investigation we have seen they're just upstanding citizens a student and a teacher just like your neighbor. Nothing would would pop out stand down now. was there anything taken from the home. I can't go into them in December two thousand thirteen less than six months before she and her daughter are brutally murdered inside their home. Kathy writes a peculiar post host on her facebook page per eldest daughter. Holly is home for winter break from moorhead State University. The Post reads earlier earlier this afternoon. We heard a noise. I thought one of our two cats had knocked over something. We didn't find anything disturbed so he thought it was nothing boy. Were we wrong a little while ago. Holly opens our front door to go outside to pick up the mail and finds both glass panels in our screen endorsed shattered. We have taken picks and have carefully removed loose pieces of glass and the glass frames. All of the shattered glass pieces have been and swept up off the front porch. Guess I'll be heading to. Lowe's tomorrow to find replacements crazy. Hell unexpected events happen and there's been speculation that it's possible that the other daughter had some involve men will again. That's something I couldn't talk about unfortunately in every type of investigation like this we look at everybody's a suspect to certain extent. I don't we don't name suspects aches to we actually have one but you know we don't rule anything out but I can say that the the older daughter has been co-operatively positively an investigation and has talked to us in spoken to US and keeps in touch with us at all times. I know that there's rumors going around but we can't stop author Rumors Jessica. I try calling Stacey Hibbard Kathy Netherlands sister. Sorry your call cannot be completed. John Please check the number and again that is so not the norm all and that's the only number that we have on file while so she's never been really open and sharing phone numbers and contact information and this could have been her number before all all the media started trying to contact her about everything and she's just had a change to protect your privacy and stay under the radar.

"Contains graphic subject matter and has meant for mature listeners. Only you can see why someone might have some sort of to go after a police officer but who goes after a a high performing student less than a year after thirty-three-year-old Jason Ellis's gunned down in the early morning hours just off the bluegrass parkway a brutal the violent crime rocks the community again just outside of the Bardstown city limits forty eight year old. Kathy Netherland doesn't show up for work. She's a special education teacher at Bardstown elementary and the mother of two daughters. Her teenage daughter is also absent from school. Neither mother other or daughter could be painted as you know doing sketchy things in hanging out with the wrong people the mother was very respected very very well liked by her students. Kathy's father goes to check on her. What he discovers is a scene of horror. I think I read in the report says Oh the daughter Skull was smashed in. Maybe there was something emotional in there that would cause a person to be more violent more brutal but I think it was sending some sort of a statement and the fact that they died so gruesomely the fact that that kind of thing could happen right here in this area. It shocked a lot of people I hope no other family ever has to stand outside their loved ones how knowing that their sister fister and their needs are lying dead inside just steps away but completely unreachable. I'm Shay mcallister allaster this his bardstown not a lot of details have been given out about the Netherlands murder case over the years and no one seems to know a law so shea were and Bardstown and I covered the Jason Ellis KS this pretty extensively back in two thousand thirteen. Can you kind of catch me up like where things have gone and what's happened. Since since Jason was ambushed yeah definitely so of course the Netherlands family was murdered violently eighty one year later April two thousand fourteen and that was a mother daughter mother and daughter and mother was so well known she was a widow she had another daughter she lost her husband years earlier and she was a teacher at a local school and everybody just loved her so that was devastating into the community and the death was so violent it was. I mean stabbed multiple times. There's a lot of parts of that there. They were hard for people to listen to an in their home own home in their own home and it was there there is it wasn't burglarize. There's nothing missing. If I understand yeah I mean it's been tricky because it is one of so many unsolved cases of course they can't point the finger at exactly actly. Who did it but there are strange things about it like that that they didn't think it was a robbery? They thought it would be personal someone new on which was hard to hear to two. Why would someone go in there and kill this woman who was so loved in this community and her daughter so that one was it was hard. One Year Rafter Jason Alice Blogger Richard Caldwell lives in the next town over and thinks whoever killed the mother and daughter didn't know them but it was someone one sending a message these are his personal theories and not from the official investigation but as with all of the cases in Bardstown Richards theories series paint a bigger picture town looking for answers where there are none. The official story was that it was a random act that someone just burst burst into their home and murdered this woman and her daughter while not stealing anything their purses were still there untouched no valuables. The money was still there. Nothing was taken from the scene. I think that either the mother or the daughter just happened to be at the wrong wrong place at the wrong time and it followed them home. There's no way to prove that though and even with all the official investigations into what happens happens you know no motives established because there's never been any actual suspects charged in their murders. I think it was someone maybe miss misusing or abusing whatever power they had in the moment to guarantee that you know whatever they saw or a her wouldn't be shared with others. What we do know is that forty eight year old Kathy Netherland and her sixteen year old daughter Samantha were tortured and murdered inside their modest home on April twenty first two thousand fourteen Cathy was shot several times and Samantha was stabbed opt unbeaten on her head. Both of their necks were slashed. early on police say they aren't ruling this out as a personal attack doc and the Kentucky Standard reported that much of the killers attention seemed to be aimed towards Samantha Trooper Scott Sharp with the Kentucky State Police interviewed neighbors. Where's that day and learn who Kathy and Samantha were but not much else that spring morning he drives highway one fifty to their White House topped with the the metal roof just outside the Bardstown city limits in Butlin with The Netherlands. You said you did a lot of interviews in the neighborhood. What was the consensus of of some of those folks everybody we talked to in in those areas this if they didn't if they did know Kathy and Somme that they you know just talk so holly. How good a people they are? it goes back to your earlier question and just what kind of people that were. They were good people very good people. No one saw anything not knowing that would still be part of the miss gave him Kathy was a special education teacher at Bardstown town elementary a photo of her on facebook with another teacher. At school shows the light-hearted side of the mother of two the Brunette holds up a peace sign with her fingers nails painted bright green while wearing a green shirt adorned with shamrock pens a green sequined bow tie several layers of colorful beads around her neck and a tiny green feathered cap on her head. It's Saint Patrick's Day. Samantha was a sophomore at Bardstown high school. In fact she had just about her prom dress. It's strapless in navy blue with sequence wrapped around the waist and ruffles strip just across her knees. The strawberry blonde eighteen smiles posing snapshot in her new dress she was in the school choir on the academic team and the High Schools Young Leaders Program mm-hmm she had also just been accepted into the Garden Academy Program with Western Kentucky University. Those were members of Parkway Baptist Church and just a year earlier. Kathy lost her husband to a battle with cancer. I don't see how it could have been anyone. They knew because they were typical. Good people small town full go to church every Sunday I can't imagine either of them a sorting with with the the sort of people all who would be capable of that kind of thing but the detail about their cases out to me was the fact that that nothing from their home was taken that there was no evidence of breaking and whoever it was was allowed into the home newspaper editor Forest Berkshire Remembers Covering Their Your Story for the Kentucky Standard Forest takes us pass the newsroom and a squawking dispatch alerting reporters crimes happening in real time he walks us back to it was office. I was out in Bodoland which is just right outside of Bardstown there. The call came in the morning. We heard it over the scanner and it was a little details. We're a little foggy at that time. We run out there. and by the time we got there. Kentucky State Police were there and we started hearing the the name Netherland Orland and then one of my reporters at the time calls me and it's like hey yeah we're hearing that Samantha Netherland. I just did a story on her a week earlier about her being accepted to get an academy. The GATT academy is a very prestigious school stem school on the campus of Western Kentucky University very selective selective all and sure enough it was her Samantha and Kathy everyone who said that they had no enemies that there's no idea how something like this would happen is a very violent very brutal murder. Specially against the daughter Samantha from experts that we've talked to and that others have talked to have said that you know the majority of the violence was directed toward Samantha as if it was someone who's angry and by all everyone said Cathy was a very warm and engaging special education teacher who could have that bottle and have almost feel.
