Benefit concert in Henderson honors murder victims

HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - A benefit concert was held Saturday in Henderson, honoring Shane Breedlove.

He was shot and killed in July 2015 walking to an Evansville bar and the case is still unsolved.

“Bittersweet day for me," said Shane’s mother Carole Cleveland. "I’m proud to see so many come out and support our events, but we still have no conviction so we still have that hanging over our heads”

They’re not alone, alongside them were the Donna and Greg Crews. They too lost their son in 2015 and are still waiting for justice.

“Help us find or keep the word out," said Donna Crews. "Keep Blake’s name out there so that maybe some more tips and things would come in to help the police find who did this to Blake”.

All the proceeds will be going to a local high school’s music department for new instruments, and to a college scholarship for a child looking to major in music.

The Breedlove Foundation president told us they hope to get a huge turnout so they can grow the concert series and do them more than once a year.

“He loved the music that he did, he loved performing, and he loved carrying on the music," said President Ron Hensley. " Our goal here is to continue on his name through music”.

The parents of Chloe Randolf also came out to the event tonight.

“It’s phenomenal the support that we’ve received from our community,” said her father Jay Randolph.”We’ve never seen anything like this, it’s great to see all the people out here all the people, all the people that support the causes, all the people that support the families"

The event was at Henderson’s fairgrounds. The event has food, bounce houses, and corn hole.

Also, happening Sunday, August 25th in Henderson, is a vigil for Chloe Randolph-Abdikadir. It’s scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. in Central Park. It is being organized by the Chloe Randolph organization and is open to the public.
