(Murray, Ky.) - Trooper Jody Cash is investigating a fraud case and is seeking public help with the case. On June 1, 2015 Lexus Benton was involved in a collision in Murray, KY and later died from her injuries. Prior to Benton's death a "Go Fund Me" account was set up to raise money for her medical bills for the family. In addition to the account, T-shirts were made and sold as a means to raise money as well, which was supposed to be given to the family.

The preliminary investigation indicates all the money raised was not given to the family. If you know who made the T-shirts, or if you donated money to this cause, through the "Go Fund Me" account, bought a T-shirt or gave money another way please contact Trooper Jody Cash by email at jody.cash@ky.gov or by calling KSP Post 1 at 270-856-3721.
