McCubbin expects long investigation
Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin answers a question at a press conference Tuesday.
At her left is Detective Chris Smith, center, a close friend of her husband's, and Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin.
"If it takes six months, I want it done right," McCubbin said. "I want a good, solid case that puts people in prison - or the death penalty."
McCubbin spoke to reporters following a press conference at the Nelson County Sheriff's Office by Amy Ellis, the widow of the officer who was killed by shotgun blasts early Saturday morning on the Blue Grass Parkway at Bloomfield Road Exit 34 in what investigators are saying was an ambush.
"I'm hoping somebody will run their mouth," McCubbin said.
To provide information, anyone may call state police or a local law enforcement agency, leave a tip on the KSP website,, or text a tip to 67283. To text a tip at that number, type KSP TIP in all caps in the message field, leave a space and then enter information.
When asked by a reporter Tuesday if police had any new developments, McCubbin answered: "Nothing solid. A whole lot of tips, a few leads, but nothing we can get excited over just yet."
"We and KSP investigators are working around the clock, literally. Not much sleep and a whole lot of Red Bull just to get us all through it," he said.
McCubbin said well over several thousand dollars in reward money is being offered for information that might lead to the arrest and conviction of a person or persons in the case.
He mentioned that the local Fraternal Order of Police has set up two funds at Wilson & Muir Bank - one to support the family and one to offer reward money.
McCubbin mentioned that a man in California who saw a report about the murder on CNN called and said, "Where do I send a check?"
Ordinarily, McCubbin said Sunday, an officer would radio if he was about to assist a motorist, but not always.
The dog probably will be retired from service, McCubbin said.
McCubbin said Ellis was an "extremely active" officer, "one of our top cops," and the community probably underestimates "the dent he made in our drug problem."
McCubbin said in his 25 years as a police officer, he has "been around law enforcement deaths before," but this is different.
He compared his role as chief of police to being a military commander.
"When one of your soldiers goes down, that's the worst day of your life," he said. "No chief, no sheriff wants to go through that. It's all new ground for me."
McCubbin said that during the funeral Thursday, state troopers will be patrolling the county and answering calls so that as many local police officers and sheriff's deputies as possible can attend the services.
