Lexington Police are looking for witnesses in the New Circle Road murder

LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — When it comes to the Lexington homicides, perhaps none of them had the number of witnesses that Eric Boone’s murder had.

The 42-year-old was sitting at a red light in mid-May when he was shot and killed. Dozens of people saw what happened. Some came forward to speak to the police, but others left the scene. Now, Crime Stoppers wants to know if these cookies can add additional information.

The May 17 murder of Eric Boone shocked the conscience of many in Lexington, not just because Boone was a known figure in the town, but because of where and when it happened.

“It was rush hour, around 6 a.m. a few weeks ago,” Det. Antoine Delimpo. “The traffic was heavy. Many people had come out. »

Police say a car pulled up next to Boone’s white Dodge Charger and began shooting.

“A Chevy Equinox pulls up next to him,” Delimpo said. “The guy in the passenger seat leans out of the vehicle, over the roof of the vehicle, turns around and dumps into the vehicle next to him. It’s like something you would see in a movie.


Nearly two dozen homicides have already been recorded in Lexington this year. Police said it will take community involvement to resolve them.

“As a community, we care. The police department cares,” Delimpo said. “And Crime Stoppers there offers $2,500 for the tip that leads to an arrest.”
