The Bowling Green Police Department has obtained a warrant on a 1998 cold-case murder that happened on November 10th.    Police were called to the residence of 30 year old Carol Marie Neal to investigate the disappearance of Ms. Neal.  Evidence at Ms. Neal residence led police to believe that she had been murdered.





The warrant obtained from Commonwealth Attorney, Chris Cohron is for Leland Bradley Neal, JR, estranged husband of Carol Neal and states that Leland Neal committed the offense of Murder when he intentionally or wantonly caused the death of Carol Neal by striking her with an object causing blunt force trauma resulting in her death.

Carol and Leland Neal were scheduled for a court hearing in Warren County regarding their divorce and custody of their two children on November 12, 1998, two days after her death.  Approximately three months prior to Carol Neal being murdered, she had filed for a Standard Report for Domestic Abuse with the Bowling Green Police Department.

On April 16, 2003 in McCreary County, a partial human skull was found by subjects hunting for Indian artifacts on Parker’s Mountain.  The partial skull remains were examined by Dr. Emily Craig and determined to be the remains of Carol Marie Neal.  The location where the remains were found is within 20 miles of where Mr. Neal resided as a child and also within twenty miles of where he proposed to Carol Neal.

The whereabouts of Leland B. Neal, JR are not known at this time.  Anyone with information about Neal’s whereabouts should call the Bowling Green Police Department at 270-393-2473.
