LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – With signs in hand that read “This could be your loved one,” family and friends asked drivers along New Cut Road to help find justice for Bryan Lewis, five years after his murder.
“Bryan was amazing. He was quiet. He was shy. He was innocent. He loved everybody,” Rhonda Mars, Lewis’ mother, said.
Aside from the tragedy itself, the not knowing “why” can be the hardest part.
“Unless you’re going through it, there’s not a feeling like it,” Pam Lewis, Bryan Lewis’ aunt, said.
“Pure hell, pure hell. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about Bryan,” Mars said.
In 2012, the 21-year-old was staying at his mother’s house near Taylor Boulevard and Bicknell Avenue when someone broke in, shooting him multiple times before also killing his dog Champ, who tried to protect him. Police have said Lewis was likely not the intended target.
