WHO KILLED CURLY?
Who killed Curly? Ky police still puzzled by slaying of local TV star 56 years ago

The beating death 56 years ago of popular local singer William Arliss "Curly" Shelton has puzzled Kentucky investigators since it happened in 1957, and the case is one of the oldest for which state troopers are still actively asking for help from the public.
On Dec. 4, 1957, a local resident found Shelton's body and his vehicle behind the VFW Club approximately three miles south of Henderson.
Investigators believe someone beat Shelton to death with bare hands, breaking his leg and fracturing his skull.
Shelton's case is one of 169 troopers posted online to seek information from the public.
