Taylor, an emergency room technician, died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Now, Kaskrov is looking for funds in the “Christian Grudfunding Platform” Kiwsentko, so he can “buy the rest of his service time” and retire, according to the fundraiser. He wants to focus on the safety of his family, which, according to the explanation, has been threatened since protests erupted after Taylor’s murder.
Cosgro’s lawyer, Jarrod Beck, confirmed to CNN that the page had been set up by Castro’s family members, but declined to comment further. Kiwsentko was also approached to comment on the CNN campaign, waiting to be heard again.
The detectives are currently seeking 000 75,000 and, as of Wednesday morning, have collected more than 000 9,000.
Kaskrov and Officer Jonathan Mattingly were two of the three officers who arrived on the night of March 13 when Taylor was killed.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Cosgrove was involved in a dangerous shooting, but neither of them was charged that night – he said it was fair because Taylor’s boyfriend first shot the officers.
A third officer, Brett Hankison, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault in the first degree for indiscriminate firing on an occupied apartment.
Hankison pleaded not guilty.
Cameron told CNN affiliate WDRP that he was not looking for murder charges against Kaskrov or Mattingly.
