State Police said Friday they are appealing to the public for information on the four-year anniversary of the murder of a Shelby County man.
On November 9, 2008, James "Jimmy" Duckett was found dead in his home on Rockbridge Road. Duckett's death has been ruled as a homicide.
State Police have been investigating the murder of Duckett for four years without making an arrest. KSP is hoping to re-introduce this case to the public with the hope that a citizen may have useful information in solving this case.
Police say not only was the murder of Duckett senseless and tragic, it was conducted in his home in such an extremely violent manner it leads law enforcement to suspect the person responsible for this act has an uncontrollable violent behavior disorder or was in a very desperate frame of mind, and could still pose a significant risk to the public.
After Duckett was murdered, his debit card was illegally used to make a cash withdraw from a Shelbyville bank drive through ATM around 3 a.m. on November 9, 2008. The suspect was driving Duckett's silver Dodge pickup truck that was stolen from his home.
There is a substaintial cash reward for information that helps solve this murder. If anyone has any helpful information they are encouraged to call the Kentucky State Police, Post 12 and request to speak with a detective. All calls will be held in strict confidentiality.
If you have any information about his crime you can contact the KSP Frankfort Post at (502) 227-2221.
