The couple are now in their 70’s and cops don’t know if they knew about each other’s past.
Alice Uden is accused of killing her then 25 year old husband Ron in either 1974 or 1975 and police think Gerald Uden shot and killed his wife Virginia and two adopted sons about five years later.
What investigators still aren’t sure of are the motives for the killings and if they had anything to do with the pair meeting and getting married.
It took nearly a dozen agencies investigating for over 30 years to find the remains of Holtz with a .22-caliber bullet in it.
When Alice was interviewed in 2005 she didn’t tell cops she had been married to Holtz but authorities say she confessed to a witness
Alice told the unnamed person she killed her husband in his sleep and stuffed his body in a barrel and dropped it in a hole.
Neighbors told KY3 the pair and “several of their adult children” lived close to the Mark Twain National Forest for at least 15 years.
The pair were described as long haul truckers who were almost never home.
