FBI Announces Up To $50K Reward In Officer Death

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The FBI has announced it is offering a reward of up to $50,000 in the death of a Bardstown police officer three months ago.

Ellis was ambushed and shot to death when he stopped to pick up tree limbs as he was driving home on May 25.

The FBI was holding a news conference Monday to announce the reward for information leading to identification, arrest and conviction of whomever is responsible for Ellis' death and to release a revised poster seeking information in the case.

The 33-year-old officer had a K-9 partner, Figo, who was retired after Ellis' death and now lives with Ellis' family. He was survived by his wife and two sons.

The shooting remains under investigation, and no suspects have been identified.
