McConnell challenger Amy McGrath calls for Kentucky AG to release grand jury report on Breonna Taylor case

Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Amy McGrath on Thursday called on state Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R) to release the grand jury report in the killing of Breonna Taylor.

“Breonna's family and Kentucky deserve to know what happened the night she was killed. The fact that the grand jury did not even consider charges in the events that led to her death created confusion and anger,” McGrath tweeted.

“AG Cameron needs to release the grand jury report now, including what evidence and recommendations he chose to present. We shouldn't have to take his word for it,” she added.

Taylor was killed in Louisville, Ky., in March by police executing a no-knock warrant. Her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired on them when the officers entered Taylor’s apartment, later saying he believed them to be home invaders. While the police and Cameron have said the police announced and identified themselves, Walker and 11 witnesses have said they did not. The police fired back, hitting Taylor five times and killing her.

On Wednesday, Cameron announced none of the three officers involved in Taylor’s killing would be charged in connection with her death. One of the three, Brett Hankison, was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for firing into other apartments.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D) also called on the grand jury report to be made public on Wednesday, saying “I believe that the general public deserves this information.”
