LOUISVILLE, Ky. —The double murder has gone unsolved for six years. Now, on the anniversary of the tragedy, family is speaking out, hoping to turn up the heat on the cold case.
It was June 30, 2009 when a woman and her elderly mother were discovered stabbed to death inside the mother's Fairdale home.
The double murder has gone unsolved for six years. Now, on the anniversary of the tragedy, family is speaking out, hoping to turn up the heat on the cold case.
According to family, Rita Carrico, 53, arrived at her mother's home on National Turnpike on the morning of the 30th, to take her mother, Allie Habich, 83, to a doctor's appointment at 10.
That afternoon, when Habich's son who lived with his mother, arrived home from work he discovered the two had been attacked and stabbed multiple times.
"It's not like a person normally just passes away. You get closure, eventually but this, they were taken from me and that's not fair," Katrina Shannon said Tuesday.
The person or persons responsible for the death of Shannon's grandmother and aunt continues to walk free. Shannon believes it's not strangers either, but family.
"What we have been told there are certain family members that know what happened. They won't come forward. They decided to get attorneys the day after (the murders)."
In fact LMPD Detective Keith Roberts said Tuesday, "I got a pretty good handle on who I think did it. It's just trying to prove it, that's the big key for me."
Roberts had been one of the first on scene that Tuesday afternoon back in 2009. Because of the brutal nature of the crime, it has been a case he says he just cannot shake.
"It was a bad scene and I would never want to find my mom and my sister in that condition," he said.
Perhaps, that is why, as he closes in on retirement, Roberts is working the case harder than ever.
"This case is going to be air tight, no 'ifs' 'ands' or 'buts.' No cracks, no holes in it. Everything is going to be sealed up real nice and tidy," he promised.
Katrina Shannon just hopes its sooner rather than later, "I cannot let it go because I want these people caught and I want this not to be a cold case."
In six years, Detective Roberts has conducted dozens of interviews.
But, there are two family members that have never cooperated. Those two, according to police, have agreed to interviews and then had their attorneys intervene.
Detective Roberts say in spite of the lack of cooperation, he continues to receive and investigate tips.
Anyone with information of the murders of Allie Habich and Rita Carrico are asked to call (502) 574-LMPD.
Thoughts? This is obviously a horrific case made even sadder by the fact a family member or members may be responsible. According to one article, two family members got attorneys immediately after Habich and Carrico's deaths.
