LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — A week in April of 2021 was a violent one in Lexington. Investigators worked on three separate murder investigations that week and according to the city’s website, all of them are unsolved. This week, Crime Stoppers reporter Kristen Pflum focused on the shooting death of Cyrus Davis.

Davis and a bystander were shot a little before 3 a.m. on April 9. Lexington Police said they found 35 shell casings at the scene in the 900 block of Winchester Road. The investigation was so complex, it was still going on after sunrise as driver after driver used the busy city road for their morning commute.

Detectives said they talked to as many witnesses at the scene as they could, but cooperation in these cases can be tough.

“You have a uniformed officer and people don’t want to be seen,” said Sgt. Guy Miller. “They don’t want to be seen giving information for certain reasons and we understand that.”


The 35-year-old Davis’ death was the third in a violent week in the city. The investigation on Winchester Road came just two days after the murder of Lowell Washington on Dalton Court and Herbie Booker on Colchester Drive.

Lexington police are turning to Crime Stoppers for information in any or all of them.

“Hopefully someone sees this and knows something and maybe they’ve just been out of the loop,” said Miller. “Maybe they think we solved it that night, we didn’t.”
