The body of Linda Sue Boards, 23, of Smiths Grove, was found May 15, 1981, on a farm three miles from Smiths Grove off U.S. 68.

Boards had last been seen May 11, 1981, when she accompanied her sister and brother-in-law to a nightclub in Bowling Green and elected to stay after her relatives left.

Recently, Samuel Little, a convicted serial killer who has claimed to have murdered more than 90 people nationwide, confessed to the crime, providing intimate details of the murder to law enforcement. He was indicted for the murder of Boards by a Warren County grand jury in December 2017.
