At least one of the officers participating in the deadly raid on Breonna Taylor’s home was wearing a body camera, and at least one other was wearing a body camera holder, according to crime scene photographs taken by the Louisville Metro Police Department and obtained by VICE News.
This contradicts statements by the Louisville Metro Police Department that the officers involved, who work narcotics, do not wear body cameras. The department has also said there is no body camera footage from the raid. It’s unclear, however, if the camera present was turned on during the raid.
The photos also raise serious doubts about several of the Louisville Metro Police Department’s statements about what happened the night Taylor was killed and what evidence exists from the police raid that led to her death.
One of the key challenges in investigating this case has been the lack of body camera footage depicting the raid itself.
