HeissHENDERSON, Ky. (10/10/18) — A Henderson man has been charged with the murder of a woman reported missing Friday.

Henderson Police Department revealed 35-year-old Monika Roberts was believed to have been killed in Henderson, between Sept. 29-30.

Police reported last week the woman, said to possibly be from the Washington, D.C. area, was seen with a white male with the nickname “Reds,” and was treated for a gunshot wound Sept. 25 in Henderson.

HPD said a countless number of witnesses were interviewed and several search warrants were served that led detectives to the 500 block of South Kerth Avenue in Evansville, Indiana.

A joint investigation was launched between HPD and Evansville Police Department, according to the report. Roberts’ body was found at a home along the 500 block of South Kerth and South New York avenues in Evansville Tuesday.

An autopsy performed today confirmed the identification of Roberts, police said.

Neil Heiss, 30 of 380 Borax Drive, was charged with murder this afternoon. He was listed as being held today without bond in Henderson County Jail on a list of drug and wanton endangerment charges.

HPD reported the ongoing investigation is being conducted by HPD and EPD.

Anyone with information related to the death of Roberts is asked to call HPD Detective Shannon Troutman at (270) 831-1295 or Crime Stoppers at (270) 831-1111.
