Kara Borden’s Sister Witnessed Ludwig Murder Borden Dad
LITITZ, Pa. (AP) — The sister of a missing 14-year-old girl watched her father get shot to death as he was escorting an 18-year-old man from their home on Sunday after an argument, according to court records.
David G. Ludwig gunned down the missing girl’s father and mother and took the girl away from the house at gunpoint, police said. Neither Ludwig nor Kara Beth Borden, who is believed to be Ludwig’s girlfriend, has been seen since the slayings, and police are treating her disappearance as a potential kidnapping.
Katelyn Borden, 13, told investigators her father and mother were shot after they argued with Ludwig for about an hour in their home near Lititz on Sunday morning.
"As they got near the front door, Katelyn Borden saw David Ludwig with a handgun pointed toward her father and Katelyn saw David Ludwig pull the trigger, heard a gunshot, and then she ran into the bathroom," according to a police affidavit.
She heard a second shot — presumably the one that killed her mother — while hiding in the bathroom. He then ran through the house calling for Kara, she told investigators.
