Vicki Heath’s life was on an upswing.
The 41-year-old mother of two from Hardinsburg, who enjoyed reading romance novels, had recently become engaged, was working and lived in Radcliff.
Then came a phone call her sister, Kathy Johnson, never will forget. Just like that, her sister was gone.
Heath’s body was found Feb. 21, 1987, near a trash bin behind a Super 8 Motel on North Mulberry Street where she worked as a desk clerk. She had been sexually assaulted and shot twice in the head with a .38 caliber handgun.
