Two women are dead within 12 hours of each other with ties to the same Meade County residence

On Wednesday, January 31, just before 6 p.m., Meade County EMS was dispatched to a residence on Battletown Road. According to a 911 call made at 5:53 p.m., an unnamed caller alleged that a 41-year-old woman, Amanda Carwile, was out of it and could barely move. She was conscious but didn't know what was going on. The caller also alleged that Carwile's husband, Scott Hornback, had been "overdosing" her for multiple days, dropped her off at her brother's (Derick Ford) residence on Battletown Rd. and left. Carwile was transported to the hospital but later succumbed to a fatal overdose. Since the case originated in Breckinridge County prior to Carwile being transported to her brother, Derick Ford's, house in Meade County, the Kentucky State Police are currently investigating this case.

Less than 12 hours later, the Meade County Sheriff's Office would respond to the same address on Battletown Road after Derick Ford, the first victim's brother, allegedly shot and killed his partner, Crystal Fetch, at approximately 6:48 a.m. on Thursday, February 1. MCSO Detectives and Deputies arrived at the scene to find Fetch deceased. Ford was arrested and charged with murder. He is currently being held in the Meade County Detention Center on a $250,000 cash bond. The Meade County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating this case.
