Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Cosgrove fired the shot that killed Taylor – which Cameron says is reasonable since Taylor’s boyfriend fired at the officers first.
A hearing notice from the LMPD panel said part of Cosgrove’s hearings took place in November. The second half of his hearing took place this week.
In September 2020, Cosgrove discovered that Cosgrove was raising money on “Christian crowdfunding site” GiveSendGo to fund his retirement.
Detective Joshua Jaynes, who wrote the search warrant for the raid, was fired at the same time as Cosgrove.
The Louisville police union at the time called the lawsuits “absurd.”
“Certainly there is no evidence in this case that LMPD policies and procedures have been violated to the extent that they warrant termination,” the Fraternal City Police Order said in a statement. “Interim Sheriff (Yvette) Gentry not only made the wrong decision, but sent an ominous message to every sworn officer of the Louisville Metro Police Department.”
None of the officers involved in the raid were charged with Taylor’s murder.
