Glasgow police need the public’s help identifying a suspect in a homicide

GLASGOW, Ky. – Sunday, the Glasgow Police Department were called to Ann Avenue with reports that a woman had been shot at around 11:15 p.m.

According to police, the suspect had left the scene when the caller reported the incident.

The woman, identified as 54-year-old Melissa Miller, was transported to T.J. Samson Hospital with a bullet wound to the chest and was pronounced dead, according to police.

The suspect is described as a white male that fled the scene as a passenger in a white four door sedan with tinted windows and chrome trim package, according to police.

The vehicle had a white female driver and police are unsure of which direction the car fled toward, according to police.

“We always spoke. She was the friendliest, nicest lady that way. Always even come and check on us, you know, like I said, at our age. But no, I had no idea that anything like this would have happened. It’s just pitiful,” said Jackie Bodkin, a neighbor.

“Since we’ve been here, nothing like this has ever happened here. It’s always been peace and quiet. You’ve got your ups and downs every once in a while, but nothing like this. So, it’s sad to happen in an area like this,” said Lester Bodkin, a neighbor. If you have any information or may have seen this vehicle in the area please call the Glasgow Police Department at 270-651-6165 or 270-651-5151.

No other information available at this time.

“Right now, we do have a few leads that have come in. The detective section is working the case and doing follow ups in the investigation and they have been out since, you know, midnight last night. They will continue to work around the clock and follow up on all leads that we do receive here,” said Glasgow Major Terry Flatt.

The investigation is ongoing.
