Teague Aug 27

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (8/27/18) — Family and friends of a Madisonville woman gathered Sunday to remember a woman alleged to be abducted from Newburgh Beach in Henderson County Aug. 26, 1995.

The case remains unsolved.

More recent searches of any possible remains have left the mother, Sarah Teague, still without answers as to Heather Teague’s whereabouts.

The mother tearfully read poetry aloud penned by her daughter, and others provided song during Heather’s remembrance at Victory Church.

“The hottest tears that will ever fall down your face are tears of just not knowing where she is,” Sara said. “Is she cold? Is she hungry? Was she sold? … it’s probably the hardest thing for me to ever fathom ….”

Sarah said earlier this year she was told the original 911 tape she and her attorney, Chip Adams, heard in 2008 was missing from the evidence after submitting an open-records request to Kentucky State Police Post 16 in Henderson, which is handling the investigation.

The mother said she remains hopeful that Heather will be returned.

According to previous reports, an eyewitness provided statements that Heather was taken from the beach at gunpoint by a man described as bushy-haired and driving a red Bronco. Sarah contends that Dill was bald at the time Heather went missing.

KSP reports indicate troopers went to speak to the suspect, Marty Dill, and he killed himself before he could be questioned. He is listed as the prime suspect in Heather’s disappearance.

“My heart aches, because she is a part of me,” Sarah said. “I know that she’s coming home.”

In January, a Franklin Circuit Judge ruled in favor of Sarah in a civil action case against KSP to comply with the open records request related to the 1995 abduction investigation.

KSP appealed the request, citing the investigation is still ongoing. Teague was awarded $9,406 in attorney’s fees and $14,100 in penalties, according to court records. The judge said fees of $25 per day would be added until the records are released.
