Breonna Taylor's Injuries Listed as 'None' in Nearly Blank Incident Report Released After Her Death

Police officers released a nearly blank incident report on Wednesday (June 10) following the death of Breonna Taylor, whose death along with George Floyd has sparked protests against police brutality and systemic racism across the globe.

If you didn’t know, Breonna was fatally shot at 26 in her own apartment by the police during a no-knock search, yet her injuries are listed as “none.”

The police report also checked “no” on the “forced entry” box on the form, even though crime scene photos and witness reports claim officers used a battering ram to force entry into the apartment where she was asleep with her boyfriend.

In the “notes/narrative” section, they wrote only “PIU investigation,” for Public Integrity Unit, which is responsible for “monitoring or conducting criminal investigations of department members including all officer-involved shootings and in-custody deaths.”

The document was printed by Theodore Eidem, a lieutenant in the department and commander of the Public Integrity Unit.

“This is unacceptable. Full stop. It’s issues like these that erode public confidence in Louisville’s police department, and its ability to do its job, and that’s why I’ve ordered an external top-to-bottom review of the department,” said Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

The four-page report, released nearly three months after her death, includes just the time, date, case number and victim’s name. It also identifies the officers involved as Sgt. Jon Mattingly, 47, Myles Cosgrove, 42, and Brett Hankison, 44.

They have been placed on administrative reassignment, but have not been charged, despite global protests to do so.

According to the mayor, the city cannot currently terminate the officers due to a stipulation that the officers cannot be fired before the investigation is complete.
