LEX 18

Officer Jason Ellis

Perhaps one of the most heartbreaking stories I’ve ever covered: The death of Bardstown Police officer, Jason Ellis.

Officer Ellis was ambushed and shot to death outside of his cruiser early in the morning, after pulling over to remove brush out of the road.

He leaves behind a wife and two sons, both under the age of 10. Ellis’ widow speaks out in an effort to find her husband’s killer, which you will see in the video below.

Ellis was also the department’s only K9 officer, but when he was shot and killed, his dog was not with him. You probably saw the picture that went viral – of his pup, placing his paw on Ellis’ coffin.
