ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. -- Kentucky State Police have set up a special email address for tips in the ambush slaying of a young Bardstown police officer.

Officer Jason Ellis, who was 33, was killed by shotgun blasts as he stopped to pull limbs from a ramp on the Bluegrass Parkway on May 25.

Tips can be sent to EllisCaseEtips@ky.gov. Anyone with information that could help solve the case is encouraged to email it to that address set up by KSP Post 4 in Elizabethtown.

Meanwhile the Cincinnati Reds plan to honor Ellis and his family before their Tuesday game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Ellis's 8 year old son will throw out the ceremonial first-pitch as part of the club's "Officer Appreciation Day" festivities at Great American Ball Park.
