Family, friends and fellow officers honor Jason Ellis, 3 years after his death

Posted: Updated:

BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WDRB) -- Where he went three years ago, they went Wednesday.

They started at Bardstown Police headquarters, then slowly driving by Bluegrass Parkway Exit 34. 

And finally, they ended with candles in hand as a silent crowd at the grave of officer Jason Ellis listened to a goodbye that still rings in an emotional response. 

"When I saw the officers hugging Amy earlier, I mean, that could of been any of our wives," said Joedy Gilliland, a friend of Jason's.

Family, friends and fellow officers went on a multi-site memorial as part of the healing process. However, for many, that process hasn't truly started. 

Current Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin is just days away from retirement. As he steps away, he left with the lingering feeling that someone is still out there: A person who can answer the question that has been asked for three years ... who shot and killed officer Jason Ellis? 

"We are still looking for them, and I want them to be fearful," McCubbin said. "Every time a twig snaps, I want them to spin around and think it's us coming."
