Death Investigations Explained


Kentucky State Police are still not releasing any information in the death investigation following last week's shooting in Bowling Green involving Brandon Bradshaw and Warren County court security officer Tommy Brown.

This leaves many questions still unanswered, and a former Bowling Green Police chief explains why investigations of this type can take time.

"You've got to take time to get it right, and you never want to short credit an investigation for any reason, no matter how much pressure there is because you want the outcome to be the best, most detailed you could possibly have with the fullest amount of credibility," said Former Bowling Green Police Chief Jerry Wells.

Wells says if he were conducting a death investigation, he would not release any information until it had been turned over to the Commonwealth Attorney and the grand jury, who would then make a decision on an indictment.
