Featured Cold Case
In 1983, 20-year old Debbie Eckles was found unresponsive inside of her home located in the Walkertown section of Hazard on Turner Avenue. She was stabbed multiple times. It was very obvious from the beginning of this investigation that Debbie personally knew her killer. We wish to solve this case for multiple reasons. Chiefly of which, to bring closure to Debbie's living family members. Even though over 30 years have passed, we believe that the person responsible for Debbie's murder is still out there and may even be reading this statement. NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING CLOSURE. If you or anyone you know has information regarding this crime, you are encouraged to contact the HPD directly or submit an anonymous tip.Read more
