On Wednesday, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron met with the family of Breonna Taylor.

AG Cameron's spokeswoman, Elizabeth Kuhn, said the meeting gave Cameron the opportunity to "personally express his condolences to the family."

Following the meeting, the Attorney General's spokeswoman, Elizabeth Kuhn, released the following statement:

"Attorney General Cameron was grateful today to meet with the family of Ms. Breonna Taylor, including Ms. Tamika Palmer, Ms. Juniyah Palmer, Ms. Bianca Austin, and the family's attorneys, as well as Christopher 2X from the Game Changers organization. The meeting provided an opportunity for Attorney General Cameron to personally express his condolences to the family. The investigation remains ongoing, and our Office of Special Prosecutions continues to review all the facts in the case to determine the truth."

AG Cameron plays the role of special prosecutor in the ongoing investigation into the death of Taylor.

On March 13 during the execution of a now-banned no-knock warrant by the Louisville Metro Police Department, Taylor was shot and killed in her home.

Two months later on May 13, Cameron's office was asked to serve as special prosecutor in the case because of a conflict of interest by the Commonwealth's Attorney, who at the time was pursuing the prosecution of Kenneth Walker, Taylor's boyfriend.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
