Taylor, an emergency room technician, died from multiple gunshot wounds.
Now, Cosgrove is seeking funds on the “Christian crowdfunding site” Givendago to “buy the remainder of his service time” and retire according to the funding details. He wants to focus on protecting his family, which has been threatened, according to details, since protests following Taylor’s murder.
A lawyer for Corgrove, Jarrod Beck, confirmed to CNN that Page had been set up by members of Cogrove’s family, but declined to comment further. CNN also reached out to GiveSendGo to comment on the campaign and is waiting to hear back.
The detective is currently seeking $ 75,000 and, as of Wednesday morning, has exceeded $ 9,000.
Cosgrove and Officer Jonathan Mattingly were two of the three officers who killed Taylor on the night of 13 March.
Neither was convicted for his actions that night, although Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Cosgrove fired the fatal shot – which he said was justified because Taylor’s boyfriend first fired at the officers.
A third officer, Brett Hankinson, is charged with three degrees of danger for indiscriminate firing in a permanent apartment in the first degree.
Hackesen has pleaded not guilty.
Cameron told CNN-affiliated WDRB that he does not seek murder charges against Cosgrove or Mattingly.
