Images released in murder investigation
By: Greg Bird
Kentucky State Police Detective Billy Correll has released still images and video from a security camera in the hope that someone will be able to identify a woman shown in the photos, whom the state police wish to talk to in connection with the December 12 murder of Johnny G. Taylor.
The images, taken from a security camera located at an establishment off highway 90, shows what appears to be a dark colored pick up pulling into the establishment, followed by a woman possibly wearing white shoes, blue jeans, a light colored top covered by a sweater or hoodie. In the video the woman can be seen leaving the vehicle to stop at a vending machine and then reenters the truck before it pulls away.
Detective Correll stated the video was recorded about 30 minutes after the fire was reported at Taylor’s residence in Pine Knot, and he believes the truck is the same one that was stolen from the crime scene after the murder.
The truck was found abandoned and burnt a few days later about three miles from where the video was taken.
Calling the woman a “person of interest” in the case, Detective Correll asks anyone with possible information as to the identity of the woman to please contact the Kentucky State Police at (606) 878-6622 or the McCreary County Sheriff’s Department at (606) 376-2322.
Detective Correll is continuing to investigate the case and added the Kentucky State Police Electronic Crimes Division is continuing to work with the video and hopes to enhance it so additional photos may be forthcoming.
