RAW VIDEO | LMPD updates community on several homicide cases from the past week

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --The leader of the LMPD Homicide Unit held a press conference Monday to discuss multiple recent homicide investigations which have brought the metro Louisville homicide count for 2016 to 112.

Lt. Emily McKinley said all the cases since Thursday are active investigations, and there have been no arrests so far. She also said that of the 112 criminal homicides this year, 53 have not been solved.

"We should all equally be frustrated with that, because we are talking about lives of people that are lost,” Lt. McKinley said. “And each case that goes unsolved is frustrating, because we know the answers are out there. In every one of these cases, someone knows what happened.”

Five cases have been ruled homicides in the past four days:




  • A man was driven to Jewish Hospital with gunshot wounds. He died there that night. Officers now believe the original shooting might have happened around 39th Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard.

Lt. McKinley said that the solution, like the problem, is complicated. Officers need tips to help solve the crimes, but they also are searching for proactive ways to prevent violence.

"We have a generation that has trouble forgiving and tolerating and solving their problems, and [there are] some conflict resolution issues here,” Lt. McKinley said.

If you have any information that can help officers in any case, call the tip line 574-LMPD. You can remain anonymous. And Lt. McKinley wants to reassure anyone providing a tip that the department will find ways to keep you safe and protect your identity.
