  • Details of Disappearance
    On May 28, 1971, Sue Shelton (with her husband) Claude Shelton reportedly left their residence at Gerry's trailer park on 18th street in Corbin after they tucked their three children into bed.

    There was an initial belief the couple went to the King's truck stop in Corbin, but workers there say they never saw them, and the Shelton's 1967 Ford Galaxie has never been seen again.

    Claude had been steadily employed for 10 years, and family life seemed fine. No one has ever heard from Sue or Claude Shelton.
