In 1990, a pair of serial killers struck in LaRue County.
James Ray Cable and Phillip Clopton were suspected of kidnapping, killing and dismembering two Louisville teenagers. The girls, Bridget Allen and Sherry Wilson, both 14, left home one day in January 1990 and were never seen again.
In March that year, a severed arm washed up in Pottinger Creek near New Hope. Authorities determined the arm had been sawn from the body of a young person, but the victim was not identified for several months.
