Kentucky State Police are continuing to pursue leads in the investigation of the shooting death of Campbellsville resident David M. Ford.

Ford, 40, who worked as a police officer in Lebanon, was found shot to death Tuesday, Feb. 10 at his Graham Road home.

The Campbellsville E-911 Center received a phone call from Ford's wife Tonya at 1:07 p.m., stating that she had arrived at her home and found her husband, who had been shot.

KSP Detective Israel Slinker, who is investigating Ford's death, stated Monday that "several suspects have been identified and cleared of any involvement. The list of suspects has narrowed, and the pending lab results will be of great importance."

At this time, Slinker said, Ford's death does not appear to be related to his employment with the Lebanon Police Department.

"Nor does it appear to be random in nature," he said.

An autopsy has been performed, according to Taylor County Coroner Terry Dabney, though a report may not be available for several weeks. The autopsy has, however, confirmed that Ford's death was a homicide.

Anyone with any information about Ford's death is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police at (800) 222-5555 or the Lebanon Police Department at (270) 692-2121.
