CHAPLIN, KY (WAVE) – Dozens of officers and loved ones filled Highview Cemetery on Friday to honor the life of Bardstown Police Officer Jason Ellis.
Five years ago, the husband and father of two boys was brutally murdered. He was shot and killed while on duty, but the details surrounding his death remain a mystery.
"I had to start planning my 33-year-old husband's funeral while coming to grips with reality," Amy Ellis said. "All of our hopes and dreams had been taken from me. The life we planned was gone."
The Bardstown Police Department is committed to keeping Jason Ellis' memory alive.
