A new lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the late Breonna Taylor‘s Family in regards to her tragic murder they believe the Louisville Metro Police are withholding records in connection to the body-camera footage of her March 2020 incident!
The suit was filed within the Jefferson County Circuit Court last Wednesday reports Fox News.
Attorney Sam Aguilar is requesting a judge to order the department to release detailed information about the body cameras footage under Kentucky’s Open Records Act.
Despite police officials and Attorney General Daniel Cameron previously staring that there is no body-camera footage exists of the captured audience of Breonna’s death, the family believes that they are not being truthful.
Officials argue that the officers involved in Breonna’s murder were not permitted to wear body-cameras during the operation and they those involved were not wearing them either or simply did not have them activated.
The lawsuit reads, “The plaintiffs, and the public, have an uncompromised right to know whether undisclosed body-camera footage exists, or otherwise previously existed, from LMPD Axon Cameras which relates to the events surrounding the death of Breonna Taylor.”
“Assuming that body cameras were docked following Breonna’s killing, and that there was no tampering of the devices or associated storage prior to the docking, audit trails should assist in verifying whether Metro has been truthful to the public regarding the existence of footage.”
