UPDATE: Arrest made in Lindy Lane homicide investigation
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington police say they have made an arrest in connection to a homicide investigation that started earlier this week on Lindy Lane.
28-year-old Jameel Elias Cox is charged with murder, 1st-degree robbery, and tampering with physical evidence in the case.
Police say Cox shot and killed Aaron Leach at Leach’s home on Monday afternoon.
Cox was arrested without incident Thursday and is in the Fayette County Detention Center.
Lexington police say a man’s death is now being investigated as a homicide.
Police say officers responded late Monday afternoon to a home in the 1500-block of Lindy Lane for a man found unresponsive inside a home.
The coroner has identified that man as 32-year-old Aaron Leach.
This is Lexington’s 24th homicide of the year.
Graham Houck says in the four years he’s lived in the neighborhood, nothing like this has happened, and like other neighbors, he was caught off guard when he returned home with his wife.
“There were cops everywhere, multiple different law enforcement vehicles and as soon as we pulled into the driveway they closed off the streets and things,” Houck said.
Police have not released any other details about the case.
Houck says the investigation continued for hours, leaving him with questions about what exactly happened.
“By the time they removed the body and everything, it was late and we went to bed, but my wife and I were kind of keeping an eye on them,” Houck said.
