Amy Ellis was flanked by ..., 28 May 2013 [cached]
Amy Ellis was flanked by Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin, other officers of the department and Tara Denzinger, the widow of Frank Denzinger, a Floyd County, Ind., deputy sheriff who was shot and killed in 2007 after responding to a domestic disturbance.
McCubbin said Kentucky State Police have received a lot of tips "but nothing we can get excited over just yet. McCubbin said police are combing through arrests that Jason Ellis made as an officer of the department over the past seven years.
McCubbin said Ellis made a dent in drug trafficking in Nelson County with Figo as his partner.
The mayor of Bardstown has scheduled a news conference for 5 p.m. Tuesday, McCubbin said.
McCubbin said Bardstown police and Kentucky State Police investigators are "working around the clock, literally" to pursue answers to questions in the case.
"Not much sleep and a whole lot of Red Bull (energy drink) is getting us all through it. We're not going to rest for quite a while," McCubbin said.
McCubbin said he has instructed his officers to be more vigilant in the wake of the shooting.
"I've asked our folks, 'Don't get your guard down,'" McCubbin said. "'Don't let the emotions take over' so we don't have anyone else hurt. That's the hardest part, staying focused."
McCubbin has been chief of the Bardstown department for two years. It has 25 uniformed officers and has openings for two more.
"This has struck a lot of people," McCubbin said. "A lot of people have stopped me and said, 'We understand your job's dangerous and police are killed every day somewhere.' But I think the fashion and the manner this one was done has angered even those who may not know a cop. We're hoping that anger will mirror ours and help us get it solved."
McCubbin has emphasized that two officers should respond to every call. "I didn't have to even say that because our officers are three, four deep on every call, even if it's just riding by or in the area."
McCubbin said Officer Ellis drove a pool cruiser the night of the shooting because the SUV he normally drove was in the shop getting painted. Ellis wore a bullet-resistant vest at the time of the shooting, McCubbin said.
Police have not released what kind of debris was in the road, and McCubbin declined to specify it on Tuesday.
"It's part of the case and KSP has asked me to withhold that at this point," McCubbin said.
No single previous arrest made by Ellis jumps out as a possible suspect, McCubbin said.
McCubbin estimated that Ellis made a dozen drug-related arrests per month.
Asked if Ellis had received any death threats prior to the shooting, McCubbin said, "No, sir."
McCubbin acknowledged that the investigation might become a long, protracted affair.
"I say that because I want it done correctly," he said.
Thursday, the day of Ellis' funeral, would have been the seventh anniversary of his start with the Bardstown police department, McCubbin said.
Kentucky State Police will be covering Nelson County on Thursday so city and county law enforcement officers may attend the funeral, McCubbin said.
