WOODFORD COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – Plans for a special memorial to honor a Bardstown police officer who was ambushed and killed are underway in Woodford County.

Sunday will make one year since Officer Jason Ellis was killed on his way home from work on the Bluegrass Parkway.

In the last few weeks 1,500 milk jugs have been collected thanks to individuals and three dairy farms.

Sheri McDaniel, with the Woodford County Recycling Center, said, "We would like to be a part of this memorial even though they're 45 miles down the road or 45 minutes away."

Candles will be placed in each of the jugs which will be placed along the six mile trail from the location Ellis was ambushed to the cemetery where he was laid to rest.

Investigators in Nelson County are continuing to look for leads in the case and said they are touched by those beyond the county borders who have pitched in to honor Officer Ellis.
