A sister is pleading for information in her brother's murder.

James Duckett was tied to a chair and killed earlier this month in his Shelby County home.

Now, his family hopes someone can give police the information they need to make an arrest.

Duckett's family, including sister, Katherine Nichols, addressed the media on Tuesday, asking for the public's help.

Kentucky State Police examined a truck, stolen from the crime scene, for evidence and also obtained video from businesses near where it was located.

Police have not talked about a motive or named a suspect, something the family would like to see happen sooner than later.

Investigators say they aren't releasing a lot of information on the case because they don't want to jeopardize the investigation.

A reward is available that will lead police to an arrest, but they will not reveal the source or even the amount.

The family and KSP are stressing the importance of calling 502-227-2221 with any information in the case.
