Police following leads in murder; Family hoping for answers

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---It's been a week since 30-year-old Dominique Carter-Bryant was shot and killed as she was walking into her West Louisville apartment building at 22nd & Magazine Streets.

"I just can't believe it's real. It's my little sister and she's no longer here," says Kirk Carter, Jr, the brother of Dominique Carter-Bryant.  

It's hard for Kirk Carter, Jr. to talk about what happened to his sister.

Her brothers flew in to attend her funeral and be with family members.

"It's like a dream you know, and it's been going on for a week," says Jacques Boddy, the victim's brother.

"She was the best. The very best," says Kirk Carter, Jr.

"It's hard. It's very hard," says Jacques Boddy.

What's harder, however, is not knowing who did this and why.

"She leaves a child. She will never see her graduate, marry, or enjoy her having children," says Rosita Boddy, the grandmother of Dominique Carter-Bryant.

The funeral for Dominique Carter-Bryant was held this week.

There have been no arrests in the case, but police do say they are following some leads.

Family members aren't giving up and are urging the public to help them.

"I am appealing that whoever did this just come up and confess why they did it," says Rosita Boddy.

"We'll never have closure to this situation even when justice is served, but please someone please, come forward and report the information that we need to have justice to be served," says Kirk Carter, Jr.

This shooting was the 2nd homicide of the year.

If you have information, you can call the anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD.
