BULLITT COUNTY, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office investigator Lynn Hunt was fired Thursday. She had been suspended since May.

Hunt was the investigator for the Stanley Dishon and Julius Hatfield cases. The Sheriff’s office won't comment on why she was fired.

There’s no word on what happens to cases she was investigating.

Hunt was initially scheduled to appear before the Sheriff's office merit board to appeal her suspension. In May, her husband was fired as a deputy with Bullitt County Sheriff's Office for his role in using an electroshock weapon during an arrest. He was present at the hearing, along with Hunt, appealing that termination. However, after several hours of testimony and deliberation, that termination was upheld.

It was announced prior to the beginning on Hunt's hearing that she had been fired earlier in the day. Hunt declined to comment to WDRB News following the hearing.

Hunt's lawyer said that he also had no comment but said they would be exploring "all possible legal options" to fight her termination.

Previously, Hunt had been under investigation while employed by Louisville Metro Police for allegations of falsifying time sheets. She quit before the investigation was completed.
