Police need information on double murder in Lexington


LEXINGTON, Ky. (KT) -- Lexington Police are asking for the public’s help in solving a double murder that occurred earlier this week.

Around 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 16, Police say they sent officers an apartment building in the 1300-block of Alexandria Drive for a welfare check after an anonymous caller reported that a relative of theirs had been shot, and officers found the victims dead inside an apartment.

Based on their initial investigation, investigators say it appears the two may have been dead for several hours prior to their discovery.

The Fayette County Coroner has identified the pair as 24-year-old Marquis Dorell Harris and 25-year-old Sharmaine Shardea Carter.

No arrests have been made at this point, and Lexington Police are asking anyone who has any information about the victims or what may have happened to them, to contact police at (859) 258-3600. Anonymous tips, including photos and videos, can be submitted by texting LEXPD plus the tip to CRIMES (274637).

Information can also be sent anonymously through Bluegrass Crime Stoppers at (859) 253-2020 or www.bluegrasscrimestoppers.com.
