It is one of the many murder mysteries that continues to haunt Bardstown. Sunday marked one year since Tommy Ballard was shot and killed as he went hunting with his grandson in Nelson County.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – It was one year ago when Tommy Ballard was shot and killed on a hunting trip and officials are still unable to identify the person responsible for his death.

Family and friends say it’s important not to give up searching for answers in both his and his daughter’s cases.
