At about 9:20 p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2024 police were called to the intersection of 58th Street and 36th Avenue. There were multiple reports of shots fired. Kenosha Police were on the scene investigation for along period of time.

The shooting led to the death of Kenneth S. Davidson (32) of Kenosha. According to social media, Davidson was a personal trainer and loved physical fitness and strength training. He was a personal trainer at several locations.

Our local paper recently put out a story quoting the family of Davidson which read in part:

McKenzie said the family has been frustrated by with the lack of progress in the case and felt left in the dark by the Kenosha Police Department. “They’re not keeping us updated,” McKenzie said. Last they had heard, a second detective was supposed to be out gathering evidence, but haven’t heard anything else since.

This was written by a Kenosha News employee named Joe States. Joe is a liberal who claims to be neutral and unbiased, but his reporting seemingly shows his anti-police personal feelings.

KCE wanted to follow up with KPD to get to the truth about how KPD handles serious investigations, in general, and about this case in particular.

Lieutenant Josh Hecker – Kenosha Police Spokesman

Kenosha Police spokesman Lieutenant Josh Hecker, who was a detective for many years, told KCE that “every investigation presents a set of challenges, especially homicides. I have personally felt frustration from several families during homicide investigations, for not keeping them apprised of each and every detail that involved their loved one.”

Hecker certainly doesn’t blame the families of victims for wanting more information, but insists that to catch the bad guys, all of the information can’t be given to the families until it is prudent to do so.

KCE: Can you give [KCE] some general reasons why the family of a victim would not be given frequent briefs about all the details and breaks in an investigation? 

Lt. Hecker: Every detail would not be shared as certain details could compromise the investigation and some details are simply too graphic to share. Also, if there are breaks in the investigation the first step is to act on those breaks (leads). Reaching out to the family when a lead is presented is not common place, especially if the information received could be compromising. For example, if a DNA match identified a possible suspect, I would focus my efforts on how that person could be involved and formulate a plan on how to get that person in for an interview. Open communication with the family is difficult. You want them to know that you are working on their case and that it is of the utmost importance, but you also try not to provide false hope along the way.

Each family is different. Some call daily looking for updates, while others do not call at all. So, there is a balancing act that occurs regarding “frequent briefs.”

KCE: “Isn’t it common for the Kenosha Police to withhold details from everybody, including the family? []”

Lt. Hecker: “There are investigations that require detectives to withhold information. [] Again, homicides are often difficult cases to solve and they require a significant number of hours to investigate. Remember, that the overall outcome rests on the shoulders of the lead detective, with the ultimate goal of convicting the person(s) responsible. That burden is an awesome responsibility that weighs heavy on any detective that has ever been donned the title of lead homicide detective.

KCE: “In this case, we see how the victim’s family seem[ed] to [] share the little information law enforcement has given them to the news media doesn’t this make it a little harder to solve a case?”

Lt. Hecker: Strategically speaking, if I were the detective on this case I would only provide details to the family that would not hinder the investigation. I would assume that whatever information I provided to the family would be shared with others and that information would not have any impact on the investigation.

Speaking to the homicide of Mr. Davidson, “Det. Wilson reached out to the family liaison this morning, who indicated that she was understanding about the current status of communication (whatever that may be) between the KPD and the family. She was also provided a current status of the investigation,” said Lt. Hecker today.

The investigations is ongoing. WHen the shooter is in custody, KCE will let our readers know.

  1. That punk kid needs to learn how police investigations
    work, before popping off about it in the local paper and
    showing dozens of readers how stupid he is.

    1. Why are we trashing the writer here? He literally quoted the family and the police aren’t denying that they haven’t been doing a ton of updating and they gave the reasons why…..

      1. Because he should know the reasons why they
        are not giving information.
        Even common schmucks like me are smart
        enough to know that LE shouldn’t reveal certain
        aspects of investigations.
        The same applies in civil proceedings.

        1. The writer should know why the police aren’t giving this family information even though he has no affiliation with the police or the family? Yeah….you are definitely a schmuck.

  2. They need to interview the man he was with when he got shot…. I feel as though he is who the real target was.

  3. Y’all look dumb as fuck in the comments the police don’t gaf about this man because to them he’s just another dead black man
    And it sad but true
