    Four Kentucky officers were federally charged for their roles in the death of Breonna Taylor, who died in 2020 after police forced entry into her home while executing a search warrant in relation to a drug-dealing investigation. Louisville officers Kyle Meany and Joshua Jaynes knowingly used false information to obtain the search warrant that allowed them into Taylor’s apartment despite lacking “probable cause” for the search, according to their indictments issued on Wednesday. The two have been charged with one count of deprivation of rights under color of law, one count of conspiracy, one count of falsification of records in a federal investigation, and one count of making a false statement to federal investigators.

    A North Port police officer has expressed doubts about Brian Laundrie's claims that he left their home and went to a nature preserve, as the search for Laundrie continues. In an interview with NewsNation reporter Brian Entin on Friday, North Port police spokesman Josh Taylor said there is 'a lot of oddness' about Laundrie's parents claims and admitted that part of their story 'just didn't make sense.' He said that the North Port police are working with the FBI to find Laundrie, who returned home from a cross-country trip with his fiancée Gabby Petito on September 1 without her. Laundrie, 23, was then reported missing himself on September 17, with his parents telling police he went to the nearby Carlton Reserve and never returned.

    Randy Allen Taylor, who is serving two life sentences for the 2013 murder of 17-year-old Alexis Murphy in Virginia, could now face prosecution for the 2010 murder of 19-year-old Samantha Clarke, WTOP has learned. Fifty-five-year-old Taylor was given two life sentences for Murphy’s death. Initially a no-body murder case, Taylor recently led investigators to where he had hidden Murphy’s remains in Nelson County, Virginia — more than seven years after her disappearance. In October 2020, Nelson County Commonwealth’s Attorney Office sought, and was granted, two transportation orders to have Taylor taken from Virginia Red Onion Prison — a state “supermax” facility in Wise County — to the Virginia State Police office in the town of Lebanon. While in state police custody, Taylor was brought to Nelson County, near the intersection of U.S. Route 29 and Stagebridge Road, in Lovingston. On private property, not far from modest homes, trailers and sheds along the state road through the tiny town, Taylor led investigators to where they would find Murphy’s remains, according to sources familiar with the search. Nelson County Commonwealth’s Attorney Daniel Rutherford...

Rand Paul introduced a bill on Thursday to ban no-knock warrants -- the type of warrant that ultimately led to the wrongful shooting death of Breonna Taylor, one of multiple black people who died as a result of excessive police force, prompting protests nationwide.The Justice for Breonna Taylor Act bans federal law enforcement officers from carrying out a warrant "until after the officer provides notice of his or her authority and purpose" and blocks state and local law enforcement agencies that receive Justice Department funding from carrying out warrants that do not require the officer involved "to provide notice of his or her authority and purpose before forcibly entering a premises.""After talking with Breonna Taylor's family, I've come to the conclusion that it's long past time to get rid of no-knock warrants," Paul, a Republican, said in a statement.
