Family, friends gather to remember Louisville homicide victim

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two months after a man was shot and then drove his car into a house, police are still trying to find the person who pulled the trigger.

Brandon Hansford, 29, was found dead in mid-July in a car along Upper Hunters Trace.

According to Louisville Police, Hansford was shot several times and as he drove for help, his car slammed into a home’s garage.

On Saturday night, friends and family gathered at Briargate Presbyterian Church near the scene of the shooting.

They lit candles and released balloons to honor Hansford and other homicide victims in Louisville.

“We just don’t understand why this happened to him and we’re trying to get answers,” said Kayla Pinales, the mother of Hansford’s son Parker. “We’re doing this vigil not just in his memory, but for other murder victims as well. We don’t want them to be forgotten and we don’t want Brandon’s face to be forgotten.”

No one has been charged in the case.

Anyone with information on Hansford’s death is asked to call the Louisville Metro Police tip line at (502) 574-LMPD.
