Safety Tips

Here are a few safety tips for Holliday Shoppers... Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise such as one-time or multi-use disposable credit cards or money orders. Carry your purse close to your body or your wallet inside a coat or front pocket. Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle. If you are shopping with children, make a plan in case you are separated from each other. Beware of “bargains” from companies with whom you are unfamiliar- if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

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.
