Friends and family of the victim of a recent homicide gathered Sunday afternoon to remember the father of 7.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Friends and family of the victim of a recent homicide gathered Sunday afternoon to remember the father of 7.
Charles Cowherd, 34, was found shot to death near the intersection of 23rd Street and Standard Avenue in the early morning hours of June 19th.
“They really took something from us,” said one of Cowherd’s daughters through tears. “There's nothing we can do.”
Around 100 of his family and friends gathered at the intersection where he was killed for a vigil on Father’s Day.
“I keep thinking he's going to come home,” his sister said.
Cowherd was heavily involved in the Dirt Bowl basketball tournament. Last year, Master P was given a proclamation by the city. To honor Cowherd’s life, Master P gave that proclamation to his family.
“I can't talk to my daddy,” said his son Charles Cowherd Jr. “I can't say nothing to him. I can't even give him a call.”
Cowherd’s homicide marked the 49th of the year for Louisville.
“The killing got to stop,” said Cowherd’s wife off nearly three years Nicole Cowherd. “The violence got to stop. You don't have to answer to me but they have a power to answer to. They got to stop.”
Cowherd’s family is pleading with the shooter to turn themselves in.
“Just go ahead and turn yourself in,” his son said. “Because look what he's doing. You see my sisters cry. Look what he did to my sisters. There ain't nothing else to say.”
If you have any information about this case you’re urge to call the police anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD.
