(WHAS11)  We have learned new information about the search for the killer of Trey Zwicker, the 14-year-old boy found murdered behind Liberty High School in Louisville in May of 2011.

Amanda Campbell, Trey Zwicker’s mother, filed an Emergency Protective Order against her husband Josh Gouker just last week.  In the EPO, she says Gouker has taken a folder with all her important information about her children, and that she’s scared he could do something to her daughter. 

Campbell says in the last month Gouker has become more aggressive, that he wanted to kill her and himself and has been drinking, taking pills and smoking marijuana.  Police have not called Gouker a suspect.

Trey Zwicker’s father says that 60 people have been interviewed in the case, but to date no one has been arrested.  “You are waiting for that one moment in the middle of the night when you say, ‘I got it’, it’s like that time is never coming for me,” said Terry Zwicker, Trey’s father.  “I know it’s not right to hate somebody, but there is no way I will go out of this life without hating the person who [done] this to my son.”

“He was beaten pretty [bad] in the face and head area,” said Terry Zwicker.  “Whoever did this was cold hearted.  From what I seen in the coffin, somebody like that should never be walking around.”

Zwicker was staying at his mother’s home at the time he was murdered.  Her husband, Gouker, has been in prison for violent assaults in the past.  Police have not yet named him as a suspect in the case.

If you have any information you are urged to call Louisville Metro Police at 574-LMPD.
