Cold Case on Claude Shelton and Sue Shelton

Detectives are asking for your help in a missing persons case from 1971.
Last Seen May 28, 1971, in Corbin, KY

On May 28, 1971, Claude Shelton and his wife, Sue Shelton, left their residence at Gerry's trailer park on 18th street in Corbin, and never returned.

They left their residence, after putting their three kids to bed, apparently en route to King's truck stop five miles away. This is according to their daughter, Sherri, who overheard them talking after going to bed.

The Shelton's presumably left in their vehicle, a white 1967 Ford Galaxies 500. None of the employees at King's remember seeing them. A witness stated that they had been saving money and had approx. $600.00. The daughter said they kept money in a bowl in the kitchen but it was never found.

Mr. Shelton had been steadily employed for 10 years and, according to witnesses, both he and his wife were fond of their children and it is unlikely that they would leave them.

If you have any information in this case, please contact Lt. John Yates or Sgt. Greg Hill at (606) 878-6622 or you can email them at John.Yates@ky.gov and Gregory.Hill@ky.gov with any information.
