The prime suspect in one of New York state’s most vexing cold cases ― the 2008 disappearance of a woman who married him, then dumped him for his bigamy ― has been arrested in Kentucky on charges of abducting and raping a woman.
Ken Anderson, 56, was charged Tuesday with kidnapping, first-degree rape and unlawful imprisonment. The victim, who has not been identified, was abducted in New York and taken to Kentucky, where police rescued her after she was reported missing, authorities said.
Police said the woman was held against her will in a Richmond, Kentucky, hotel. She said she was “very afraid” of Anderson, according to the police report, and had a restraining order prohibiting him from contact with her. Authorities haven’t commented on the woman’s relationship with Anderson, but said she had been assaulted by him previously. Police declined to release additional information about the crime.
Anderson also is a suspect in the eight-year-old disappearance of Corrie Anderson, then 36, according to police in Kentucky and New York. The couple were married and lived together for five years, but Corrie Anderson discovered he hadn’t divorced a previous wife and left him, New York authorities said.
“Mr. Anderson is a suspect in the missing persons’ case of [his] ex-wife eight years ago,” Richmond police Maj. Steve Gregg told The Huffington Post on Monday.
