BARDSTOWN, Kentucky — More than 19 months after Bardstown police officer Jason Ellis was ambushed and hit with multiple shotgun blasts, Kentucky State Police are asking again for the public's help in finding his killer.
State police Lt. Jeremy Thompson said at a news conference Tuesday in Bardstown that the lack of an arrest is frustrating for everyone. The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1ygGsbv ) said Thompson asked the public to come forward with any information that might help solve the case.
He said there is a total of $218,000 in rewards available to anyone who provides information that leads to arrest and conviction.
The 33-year-old officer was shot May 25, 2013, after he stopped to pick up tree limbs on a highway exit ramp.
