Cameron, who was appointed as special prosecutor May 13, said his office has received information from Louisville Metro Police Department's (LMPD) Public Integrity Unit; however, his office is conducting an independent investigation. He announced his office has a team of investigators with combined experience of over 200 years. 

"You have my committment that our office is undertaking a thorough and fair investigation," said Cameron. Cameron stressed the investigation will be based on facts, evidence, and the law. It would not be tried by public opinion.  He went on to say He understands the urgency, the public outcry and the desire for justice and says he and his office will be as transparent as possible.

Breonna Taylor was killed last March while LMPD officers executed a no-knock warrant at her apartment. The family's attorney, Lonita Baker, recently called on Cameron to independently investigate Taylor's death. 

Cameron stressed that his office is doing a fair assessment of available evidence. He said that he continues to receive information from LMPD, whose investigation also remains ongoing.
