Updated: Sep 15, 2020

Attorneys for the family of Breonna Taylor held a news conference to discuss the meetings they had with Kentucky's Attorney General Daniel Cameron, and Louisville's mayor Greg Fischer.

Today, civil rights attorney Ben Crump and co-counsels Sam Aguiar and Lonita Baker spoke at Louisville Metro Hall joined by Breonna Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, and her aunt Bianca Austin.

"We do expect charges to be filed sooner rather than later for those responsible for the death and the execution of Breonna Taylor," said Attorney Ben Crump after the Taylor family's meeting with Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.

While no specific details were given on the status of the investigation regarding the wrongful death of Breonna Taylor, AG Daniel Cameron has said that he offered the family his condolences. During the news conference, Baker confirms it was the primary focus of the meeting. She said Cameron had not personally reached out to the family before for fear of how it would affect the investigation.

Bianca Austin, Breonna Taylor's aunt, says she wants everyone to continue calling for justice in the streets. "We need to take our city back so there won't be any more names. We don't need another Breonna Taylor, David McAtee or Tyler Gerth." - WLKY

According to the Associated Press, police arrested 87 demonstrators who gathered at the home of Kentucky's Attorney General Daniel Cameron to demand justice for Breonna Taylor in July.
