LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – The July 27 murder of Kendall Berry was shocking in more ways than one.

Not only was the Lexington father shot to death before the sun went down, it happened outside busy townhomes while two children walked alongside him.

“Nothing. We’ve got nothing. Only thing we’ve got witness wise is the hearing of gunshots,” said Detective Anthony Delimpo with the Lexington Police Department.

As homicide cases mount in the city, so does frustration for detectives who need details to solve these cases. Berry’s murder sits top of mind.

“It was premediated for sure. 8 o’clock it’s the summertime so the sun was out, people could see everything,” said Delimpo. “It was very obvious he had two children with him. One was on each side as he walked up the sidewalk. Yeah, no regard for anything. Just pulled a gun out and shot him, four times.”

Who could be so brazen? So careless about the little lives forever changed having witnessed what they did that day.

“I’m sure the shooter has some kind of motive, but we can say it wasn’t a random shooting. There was some kind of motive involved here, but we don’t know specifically what that was,” Delimpo said.

Which is why investigators are turning to Crime Stoppers. Time is ticking.

“Anyone who commits murder is a major danger, major risk but someone who would step out in broad daylight and shoot somebody numerous times with two small children on each side and that person is just out there walking free enjoying life,” Delimpo said.

As part of their summer initiative, Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information in the death of Berry or any other unsolved 2022 homicide.
