Two years after Louisville man's unsolved murder, family reaches out to city leaders

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Two years after the death of Bryan Lewis, his family says it will not give up on the search for his killer.

Family and friends gathered outside LMPD on Sunday, making sure his case is not forgotten.

"We miss our son," Bryan's father Steve Lewis said. "If you have any type of conscience, please call the police and do the right thing.”

Lewis was murdered on Oct. 20, 2012. The 21-year-old was staying at his mother's house near Taylor Boulevard and Bicknell Avenue when someone broke in, shot him four times in the face and also killed his dog Champ.

"They took my son away from me and his mom and his family and everybody who loves him," Steve Lewis said. "There was no call for it. It was a heinous way and a cowardly act in his own home."

The family has tried for two years to catch his killer, including passing out fliers and putting up billboards.

"We have a $10,000 reward still and we know there's someone out there who knows what happened," Lewis said.

With no clues, no lead, and no arrests, the family says the case will now go cold.

"I can't believe it's been two years tomorrow and we're still having to do stuff like this," Bryan's aunt Pam Lewis said.

She, along with other family members, stood outside LMPD reaching out to city leaders.

"We'd like to ask Mayor Fischer to help us,” Steve Lewis said. “They've got over 500 unsolved homicides in Louisville and they've got four detectives working this. They need more help."

Police have said Lewis might not have been the intended target. His record was clean and, by their investigation, he was a good man.

Lewis leaves behind a son and a daughter.

"He never got to see them open their first presents, take their first steps or anything. He was cheated out of all of that."

Cheated, but not forgotten. His loved ones say they will never give up until the killer is caught.

"I don't know if there will ever be closure because he's gone, but I know that they won't be hurting somebody else," Pam Lewis said.
