Father puts up billboard, seeking answers in son's unsolved murder

Jeff Price says that he doesn’t think his son will truly be able to rest in peace until a killer or the killers are found and put in jail.

18 months ago, Kevin “Kevo” Price was killed. There’s been zero arrests. So Jeff Price is spending hundreds of dollars..hoping that at least one among thousands of people who travel the Ky. 914/ U.S. 27 intersection in Pulaski County will see it and tell police something.

“When this picture shows, 1,044 times a day, this intersection gets thousands of thousands of cars here, it lets people in this county know what’s still lingering outside their doors,” said Jeff Price, the father of the 21-year-old murder victim. The billboard rotates between several ads, but Price says the one asking for justice in his son's murder is shown dozens of times an hour.

Price was killed in November 2009 but his body was found nearly a month later in a burn pit on the opposite side of the county. His pickup..also burned..was found near his workplace. But who did it all..remains a big question mark.

“Everybody is frustrated. Everybody wants answers,” said Price.

Price says those answers won’t bring back his son…but it will put who’s responsible in jail. And he hopes the billboard…provides some motivation.

“And just keep Kevin’s memory going by just keep fighting…making sure that these people come to justice,” said Price.

Police say this is still an open and active investigation with a full time detective devoting a lot of time to it. The sheriff says he’s confident they will make an arrest but he says he can’t comment on whether there will be one, or more than one arrest.
