The attorneys for Breonna Taylor’s family are continuing to demand justice despite disappointing results from the grand jury.

On Saturday (Oct. 3), one day after the grand jury deliberations about Taylor’s death were made public, the family lawyers penned a letter to Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear asking him to reopen the case with a new prosecutor.

“Unfortunately, [Daniel] Cameron did not serve as an unbiased prosecutor in this case and intentionally did not present charges to the grand jury that would have pursued justice for Ms. Taylor,” the letter read.

“All lives have value,” it continued. “Bre’s life had special value because of the sacrifices she made for her community. It is past time for Louisville’s and Kentucky’s leaders to honor the value of her life by holding those responsible for her death accountable.”

Attorney Benjamin Crump also published an open letter on his website, calling for Cameron to recuse himself from the Taylor case and allow the Kentucky Prosecutors Advisory Council to appoint a prosecutor who is “willing to allow a grand jury to actually do its job, deliberate over all possible charges and render a decision on a True Bill for each.”

Alongside the letters, the family requested 10,000 signatures from Taylor’s supporters.

Just days after the City of Kentucky agreed to pay Taylor’s family $12 million as part of a wrong deathful lawsuit, the grand jury solely indicted former detective Brett Hankinson on three counts of wanton endangerment, charges unrelated to Taylor’s death.

Cameron initially fought against disclosing the grand jury’s reports, but was eventually ordered to make them public after a juror sued him, alleging he was using the jury as a “shield.” He was also accused of providing “contradictory statements” about the interviews conducted during the investigation.

The grand jury’s reports in the Taylor case were officially released on Friday (Oct. 2).
