LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - One of the three officers under investigation in the death of Breonna Taylor is now also being investigated for sexual assault, according to LMPD. A WAVE 3 Troubleshooter Investigation found Detective Brett Hankison never entered Breonna Taylorís apartment, but fired through a window with the shades drawn. As that investigation reaches the FBI, Hankison is at the center of a completely different case.

Stories have been posted to social media of young women trying to make their way home from St. Matthews bars at night. They say Hankison approached them in uniform and in his marked car to offer them a safe ride home. One woman claims Hankison rubbed her thigh, kissed her forehead, and called her baby while driving her home in his unit.

The woman quoted above is one of the first women to post her story involving Hankison online, alleging he gave her a ride home, invited himself inside of her apartment and sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious. Her statement says ďhe used his uniform to stalk women at local bars and sexually assault themĒ knowing ďhis badge would keep them quiet.Ē

She claims there are many women who have similar stories and they all blamed themselves for Hankisonís alleged actions who were too scared to report a police officer and unsure of how to go about it.

Second story from today relating to the Breonna Taylor case:

Breonna Taylor: Detective who applied for warrant placed on leave

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Interim LMPD Chief Rob Schroeder said Wednesday that the detective who applied for the warrant that led officers to the home of Breonna Taylor has been placed on administrative reassignment.

Narcotics officers served the no-knock warrant at Taylorís home on March 13. Taylorís boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, told police he fired his gun once toward the ground when he saw the door being rammed open, not knowing it was officers.

The officers returned a barrage of gunfire, striking Taylor and leaving her dying on the floor of her hallway.

Schroeder said Det. Joshua James has been placed on administrative reassignment. The interim chief said Taylorís family, their attorneys and even the postal inspector have questioned the reason behind the warrant.

Chickens are finally coming home to roost for cops here in Louisville and the victims are all singing off the same page.

Thanks goodness that wall of fear is finally falling.
