Is it just me or is hazard a town where it seems like murder is a growing trend and whats more shocking is many are getting away with it. For example you have the campbells that were brutally murdered in their home, the lady that was found in combs in a ditch or beside the road a year or so ago and now most recently the gentlemen who was murdered in alias. Now I understand every case is different and not always so cut and dry but it seems none are getting solved are no closer to being solved. I mean maybe if our law enforcement would worry a little less about pulling someone over just to harass them as lots of people say they do then maybe they could put some effort into taking some murders off our streets. Honestly and this is jmo I do think some of those cases would better be left to the state police because and like I said this is jmo but a couple of the detectives one the city police force are just to young with not enough experience to work cases like that. Leave your thoughts and opinions guys whatever you feel just wondering if any others feel as I do about this.

One of my friends was murdered years ago and still no connection. They just didn't do enough research I believe or they would have found them!

Uuhh, just so you know, none of the three murders you just named happened in the city so I cant really see how the city police play into this. So the state police that you so highly praise are the ones you should be asking about those. Further more, the two detectives that I know of at the city police are the only two in eastern Ky who have actually been to the detective academy that even the state police send there detectives to. You talk about their age but not at all about their training. Call the state police and see if any of their detectives have been to the academy to do what they do...so are we talking about age or qualification for the job based on training?

It's not because of our great law enforcement. We have the best of the best. Can you imagine what all these police officer's have to go through every night or day? It would have to be hell... But still they go with their heads held high, not knowing what lies a waiting just around the turn, ppl this job would have to be scary as hell...I know I wouldn't want my boyfriend doing it...I would b a nervous wreck... Hats off to all our law enforcement heroes.

Well, because they have county wide jurisdiction I guess all three of them would be within their jurisdiction, but if we're talkin about where they actually work crimes none of them are. Tell me which two and I will be glad to show the the map of the city lines.

The one at combs is definitely out of the city limits because the line stops at the bottom of town&country lane by the tobacco store. The most recent at Allais is out of the city limits because the line stops about 300 feet through the straight stretch, and the Campbell one is out of the city limits because the line stops on the east side of the exit 56 bridge. If you still think you know more than you do, call city hall and ask the where the city limits stop, or better yet, just drive by the police station and look at the map thats hanging on the wall.

If the city police should have nothing to do with this---then why are they allowed to come out to the county if there is a 911 call??

Does plain ignorance work for a union or something? All we are hearing about is jurisdiction. Our county/city would be alot better off if most of the officers, deputies and troopers would worry more about dignity, morality and the well being of others than they do about getting a paycheck and having authority because they are behind a gun and badge. Don't get me wrong---some of them are true to their position, but there are still some that need to take their positions more seariously. I am sure we see this in any profession though---you can find jokers anywhere you go.

Oppressors only know how to demean and control and manipulate... they love death, not life. They love slavery, not freedom.

I wonder if they'll ever solve Roy Campbell's murder. From what I've heard, Roy was a good man. What a shame that he died like that, and his case is still unsolved!
