Murder victim's family offers reward

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY.  (WDRB-TV)--The family of a 21-year-old Louisville murder victim is trying to help generate leads in the case.

It has been three weeks since Bryan Lewis was shot and killed in south Louisville.  There have been no arrests in the case so family members are taking action.

"We're not a wealthy family but we're putting together what we can right now," says William Lewis, the victim's father.

William Lewis and his family are raising money to offer a reward in the case of his son's murder.

"We need some kind of closure; this boy did not deserve this," says Lewis.

On October 20th of this year, Bryan was at his mother's home on Bicknell Avenue when someone knocked on the door and then shot him to death.

Lewis says, "And she heard Bryan Scream 'no' and I guess that's when the guy saw the dog and he ran for the door and when he opened the door somebody shot him in the face four times."

Whoever did it even shot his dog. 

"I don't know if their motive was just robbery or retaliation really don't know.  I'm just really looking for answers," Lewis says.

And Lewis hopes the reward money his family is collecting will lead to those answers.

"Like so far we've got like a couple thousand dollars but we're trying to raise more."

Right now police won't talk on camera about this case but say detectives at Metro Police headquarters are still working the case and looking for credible leads.

"Being able to put a face to the person."

Lewis says being able to do that won't bring his son back, but it will give him something else that's missing.

"That'll give us some kind of...I don't know...peace or closure or whatever," says Lewis.

Anyone with information should call the anonymous police tip line at 574-LMPD.
