A 23-year-old Kentucky woman has been jailed and charged with the murder of the leader of a notorious white supremacist group in Kentucky. This happened while she was allegedly driving drunk.
Emily Sherry was driving eastbound on Interstate 275 when she hit Robert Ransdell’s Toyota Camry. Ransdell was found dead underneath the car. According to the coroner, he died of blunt force trauma.
Ransdell was the leader of a neo-Nazi organization called National Alliance. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the organization is one of the “most dangerous and best-organized neo-Nazi” organizations in America.

He also ran an unsuccessful bid for U.S. Senate in Kentucky in 2014 with the slogan, “With Jews, we lose.”
Sherry told police that she was drinking bourbon while she was babysitting.
She had a blood alcohol level of 0.422. (BAC level over .4 can lead to coma and even “death due to respiratory arrest.”) Police also added in the complaint that Sherry was intoxicated to the point where officers felt it was unsafe for her to perform standard sobriety tests.
She is being held on a $2 million bond and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on June 7 at 1 p.m.
