Press Release

LOUISVILLE – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3), released the statement below on the death of Breonna Taylor:

“I did not know Breonna Taylor, but the horrifying public reports of how her life so tragically ended are deeply troubling and deserve the most thorough review they can be given. As the ongoing investigation continues and the facts surrounding this heartbreaking event are uncovered, it is my hope that some form of justice can eventually be delivered: to Breonna—a brave and selfless public servant—and her family, to a concerned community, and to a nation sick and tired of seeing and hearing of black and brown lives being taken so wantonly and so coldly.”
