After tragedy changed their life forever the families of Jacob Blake and Breonna Taylor went to Washington, D.C. for President Biden’s inauguration and to keep the push forward for change within police and racial violence.
A Louisville Metro Police Department officer who faces termination for his role in a raid that led to the shooting death of Breonna Taylor wrote a letter to his fellow officers cautioning them about the department and the city’s leadership.
Attorneys representing Breonna Taylor’s family and one of the LMPD officers involved in the case agree on one thing: It was Mayor Greg Fischer’s office that was pushing a neighborhood revitalization project that ultimately led to Taylor’s death.
According to the document obtained by WAVE 3 News Troubleshooters, LMPD Interim Chief Yvette Gentry said Det. Myles Cosgrove failed to properly identify the threat during his interviews following the shooting.
Unhappy with Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s decision not to directly charge any of the three Louisville Metro police officers involved in Taylor’s death, her mother, Tamika Palmer, requested a special prosecutor.
In the midst of their pain, Breonna Taylor’s family members said they want to give back to their local community. It’s a community that has given consistent support in their call for justice for Taylor for nearly a year.
The Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office is now reviewing new information about Kenneth Walker that could lead to new charges unrelated to the deadly raid on Breonna Taylor’s apartment, WAVE 3 News Troubleshooters have learned.
More than a dozen audio recordings of 15 hours of grand jury testimony were released Friday, covering a range of interview subjects and topics related to the deadly narcotics raid at Breonna Taylor’s apartment in March.
