Fayette Commonwealth's Attorney spending time at crime scenes

Fayette Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Larson has earned a reputation as one of the most aggressive, respected prosecutors in Kentucky.

You may have seen him at a lot of serious crime scenes, recalling key details and evidence that will eventually end up in his court case.

"We go. Whether it's in the early morning or whenever it is," Larson said.

Larson says he shows up on scenes to provide legal guidance to answer any questions detectives and forensic teams might have.

"There's no substitute for seeing the scene as it occurred at the time the crime was investigated," Larson said.

Recently, we saw him at a shooting off East Loudon, where police say DeMarcus Williams shot Christopher Thongs.

Two days before that, he was looking at a crash off Leestown and New Circle Road, answering questions for police on possible charges.

Larson goes to almost every scene, every crime he may prosecute.

"We have to be able to paint in a much shorter period of time the picture of what occurred at that scene and you can do it so much better if you know what you're painting," Larson said.

Larson often visits crime scenes, including car wrecks, murders, or places where bodies are found.
