On the seventh anniversary of taking the oath as a Bardstown police officer, Jason Ellis was laid to rest Thursday after a funeral that drew law enforcement officers from surrounding states. Police from Chicago, Pennsylvania, Ohio and all over Kentucky were among those who attended the funeral at Parkway Baptist Church, just off Blue Grass Parkway in Bardstown. They then made the 20-mile procession to the rural cemetery in Chaplin. The route was lined with American flags flapping in the breeze.
