WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 08: (L-R) Attorney General William Barr and Daniel J, Cameron Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, look on as U.S. President Donald Trump makes remarks as he participates in a roundtable with law enforcement officials in the State Dining Room of the White House, June, 8, 2020 in Washington, DC.

Attorney General Daniel Cameron says he met with Breonna Taylor’s family on Wednesday (Aug. 12), as WLKY reports. According to Cameron’s office, he met with Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, Juniyah Palmer, Bianca Austin, the family’s lawyers, as well as Louisville activist Christopher 2X who is a part of Game Changers organization.

There’s not much information regarding what exactly was said during the meeting. However, his office says it was an opportunity to express condolences to Taylor’s family. According to Cameron’s spokesperson, the investigation remains ongoing, so it doesn’t appear that the meeting was to inform Taylor’s family that the investigation concluded.

“Our Office of Special Prosecutions continues to review all the facts in the case to determine the truth,” spokeswoman Elizabeth Kuhn said in a news release. Back in March, Breonna Taylor was killed by Louisville police during a raid at her home.

Cameron’s office will determine whether the officers involved, Sgt. Jon Mattingly, Det. Brett Hankison and Det. Myles Cosgrove will face charges in Taylor’s death. Last week, Cameron said his office was still awaiting ballistic evidence from the FBI crime lab. A timeline hasn’t been provided on when the case might be concluded.
