Kentucky State Police are investigating a link between the kidnapping of a scholar from the Ohio State College Mansfield campus and the multicounty pursuit Monday that led to Oldham County with two individuals fatally shot.

“That case in Ohio has been delivered to our consideration, and we are investigating to see if they are linked,” stated KSP Sgt. Josh Lawson on Tuesday. 

The college requested the general public Monday to be looking out for a scholar, Skylar Williams, who was allegedly pressured at gunpoint into a automotive by a person she knew, Ty’rell Pounds, around 11:forty five a.m. 

Pounds then left the Mansfield, Ohio, campus — about 290 miles northeast of Louisville.

KSP has not yet identified the man and lady killed Monday, although dispatch recordings from Monday’s pursuit are offering more details on the moments leading as much as the deadly gunfire.

The Oldham County Police dispatch data detail that the pursuit originated in Gallatin County, about 60 miles northwest of Jefferson County.

A lady tried to flee from a darkish coloured minivan she was in, but a man pulled her again into the car, in line with the dispatch data.   

“He is probably armed,” says the unidentified voice on the dispatch data. 

Kentucky State Police Trooper Steven Dykes advised reporters Monday that around 3:30 p.m., a person reported that they noticed somebody in misery in a automotive and that there could also be a weapon involved.

That kicked off an approximately 20-mile pursuit that ended on exit ramp 14 of southbound I-71. 

In line with the Oldham County dispatch recordings, the van was shifting around one hundred miles per hour.
