Lexington Homicide Victim Was Featured On Podcast

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP/LEX 18) — A Kentucky teen who had been featured on a popular comedy podcast has been found shot to death.

The Fayette County Coroner's Office says 19-year-old Carl Garner Jr. became Lexington's second homicide victim of 2018 on Sunday.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that Garner had appeared on the podcast "Judge John Hodgman" in 2016 , after his teacher at the Lexington Day Treatment Center brought Garner's essay on whether a hotdog was a sandwich to the attention of humorist John Hodgman.

Fayette County School Board officials had commended Garner for the essay after the appearance.

That teacher, Eric Little, said news of Garner's death has been tough, describing the teen as kind and possessing integrity.

Garner's sisters, Saniqua and Vivian, spoke with LEX 18. Vivian said that Carl sent his girlfriend and cousin home for their own protection after the first round of gunfire Sunday night. He was inside the home alone when a second round of bullets tore through the home. 

His sisters said that he was still breathing when they arrived but they don't know how long it had been since he was shot. The sisters stayed with him until first responders could get there. One sister said she felt useless seeing her brother like that, she said she was right next to him as they waited for help. 

Garner died at the hospital.

Garner wanted to become a mechanic, but he was also a talented artist and writer.
