Lawrenceburg police officer Sean Wells has organized a fundraiser to help the family of a Bardstown police officer murdered last month.
Wells and fellow officers will wait tables Wednesday, June 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Edwardo’s Pizza, located on Glensboro Road, with a portion of the proceeds and all of the tips collected going to office Jason Ellis’ family.
Ellis was ambushed and murdered May 25 while removing debris off an exit on the Bluegrass Parkway.
Donations, Wells said, are encouraged  at Wilson and Muir Bank in Bardstown, where two funds have been established — one for his family and one for a reward for information about his murder.
