kycoldcase5KENTUCKY (6/12/12)—The Kentucky State Police (KSP) investigate criminal activity across the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky, and, in many instances, the information provided by individual citizens allows law enforcement officials to make important breakthroughs in difficult cases.

With this in mind, members of KSP Post 1 in Mayfield, KY are requesting help from the public in resolving the murder of L.J. Johnson.

As officials with the KSP report, Hickman, KY resident L.J. Johnson was robbed and killed in his apartment (apartment #17 at Hickman Manor) on September 9th, 1991.

Upon entry of Johnson’s residence after the incident, it was discovered that the victim’s belongings had been ransacked as if “someone was looking for money or something specific.”

Following further investigation, it was found that Johnson was beaten with a metal object and stabbed several times.

Though there are possibly two suspects linked to this murder/robbery, the person or persons responsible for the crime still remain wholly unknown.

As all leads have been exhausted, anyone with any additional information about this case is encouraged to contact Trooper Dean Patterson via email ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
