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.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
