Every day, stories unfold that have no resolution. Unresolved is an investigative and immersive look at those stories, as host Micheal Whelan tries to determine why these stories - unsolved crimes and other unexplained phenomena - have no ending.


Bardstown - Revisited (Part One: Officer Jason Ellis)

In the early morning hours of May 25th, 2013, an officer in the small town of Bardstown, Kentucky was headed home.

That officer - Jason Ellis - was a Cincinnati native who had moved to the region a little less than ten years prior. He was married, with two sons, and had left behind his childhood dreams of becoming a professional baseball player to become a member of law enforcement.

But before Officer Ellis could make it home, he was murdered in cold blood - the victim of an ambush, just minutes from his home. To this day, it remains unknown who targeted Jason Ellis... or why.

This is the first part of a new Unresolved series, Bardstown - Revisited. I originally covered Jason's story back in January of 2016, but have gone back and added in new information, rerecorded everything, and changed things significantly.

Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan
