Police Remain In Contact After Anderson Arrest

New York State Troopers are reportedly communicating with police in Kentucky, who, earlier this month, apprehended the estranged husband of a missing Busti woman.

According to State Police, Ken Anderson, 56, was apprehended in Richmond, Ky., on Nov. 8 after allegedly kidnapping and raping a woman from New York state.

Police said the arrest is unrelated to the 2008 disappearance of Corrie Anderson, a then 36-year-old mother of three who lived in Busti — and who was Ken Anderson’s wife.

“(The Nov. 8) arrest has nothing to do with the Corrie Anderson investigation from 2008,” said Trooper James O’Callaghan, public information officer. “Ken Anderson is not a suspect or a person-of-interest in this case at this time.”

State Police said they are in contact with the police department in Richmond, Ky., as well as the Jamestown Police Department, to see if any possible leads or information can be gained.

Corrie Anderson was last seen the afternoon of Oct. 28, 2008, leaving the former Lake County Dodge car dealership on Washington Street in Jamestown. Her van was found two days later on a trail off of Kortwright Road, not far from her home on Wellman Road.

According to a Jan. 25, 2009, report in The Post-Journal, Ken Anderson was questioned and his home was searched over the course of several hours the night Corrie’s van was recovered. Corrie’s family acknowledged the two were technically still married, but were separated by an order of protection Corrie placed on Ken.

The Nov. 8 arrest involved another missing female, who has yet to be identified. According to news reports, the woman was abducted in New York and taken to Kentucky, where she was found held against her will in a Richmond, Ky., motel room.

Ken Anderson was also found in the room and charged with kidnapping, first-degree rape and unlawful imprisonment. He was later taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
