The hearts of many are still hurting in Bardstown.

But one thing is certain, Officer Jason Ellis is still alive in many hearts.

You will find almost every business downtown has some sort of item to remember Ellis.

The small town of just under 13,000 is still in disbelief.

Officer Ellis was shot to death on his way home from work.

And the shooter is still out there.

Officer Ellis may be gone, but his presence will always be felt in the community.

"He always did the right things, and a lot of people respected him. And I want to carry on that tradition here at the police station," says Officer Kyler Wright, K-9 Officer.
