FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — The reward for information in the deaths of 20 horses in Floyd County has been increased to $23,000.

Kevin Shephard, the lead detective on the case, confirms the increased reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the brutal shooting deaths of the horses.

The animals were found shot to death in December 2019. The horses were found dead near an abandoned strip mine. Several of the horses killed were pregnant and at least five belonged to the family that found them.
