Former Kentucky Gov. Louie B. Nunn told his son in a 1997 letter
that "within my mind and memory, you do not exist" and that
"Someday God will humble you."
The letter is among 191 pages of documents released Thursday by
Lexington police chronicling their investigation into the Sept. 11,
2009, shooting death of 29-year-old Amanda Ross. The former
governor's son, Steve Nunn, had been engaged to Ross. He pleaded
guilty in June and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
The documents include interviews with family and friends
describing the couple's volatile relationship.
In the letter, Louie Nunn accuses his son of physical and verbal
abuse of family members - allegations similar to those made by Ross before her death. Louie Nunn died in 2004.
