A cold case suspect from Sinclairville has been arrested in Kentucky on kidnapping and rape charges.

Kenneth Anderson, 56, was arrested by Richmond Police Tuesday for unlawfully restraining and terrorizing a victim.

Officers say they found Anderson and his victim at a local motel. They say the victim was reported missing from New York.

Sources tell 7 Eyewitness News the woman who Anderson is accused of kidnapping and raping is his current wife. It is unclear why he took her to Kentucky.

Anderson is already a suspect in another missing person case involving his ex-wife, Corrie Anderson, who disappeared eight years ago. According to New York State Police, Corrie Anderson is presumed dead.

Police say the mother of three was last seen October 28, 2008 at the Lake County Dodge dealership on Washington Street in Jamestown around 1:15 p.m.

According to authorities, Corrie Anderson missed a meeting at 3:15 p.m. that day and never picked her son up from school.

Autumn Boardman, Corrie Anderson's sister, told 7 Eyewitness News she is glad Anderson is in jail, but this is still not justice for Corrie.

Her family says they're happy Ken is in jail, but say they're still upset there is no justice for Corrie.

"He's not there because of Corrie," said her sister, Autumn Boardman. "I will be glad that he is in jail, but in a sense it is a lack of closure."

The New York State Police say their investigators are talking with the Richmond and Jamestown Police Departments. This newest arrest does not involve the Corrie Anderson case, but investigators want to see if they can gain any leads on the eight-year-old cold case based on this recent arrest.
