Bradley Caraway has been charged with the murder of former U of L cheerleader Shanae Moorman.

Jeffersontown Police found Caraway walking near the highway hours after the fatal incident Saturday morning. Possibly intoxicated, he was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident and not carrying insurance. Further investigation determined Caraway was the driver of the vehicle Moorman was ejected from. Louisville Metro Police Department have now charged him with Moorman’s murder.

Moorman was a U of L cheerleader from 2010-2013. A passenger in the vehicle, she was ejected in the crash Saturday morning and pronounced dead at the scene. Spirit Coordinator Todd Sharp expressed his sympathies for Moorman in a statement.

“Shanae was a light in the life of everyone that knew her. Her energy, enthusiasm and grit was contagious. A true fighter, she had battled cystic fibrosis her entire life,” Sharp’s statement said.

“We are so grateful for the time we had Shanae here with us. She will forever be loved and missed.”

Caraway’s court hearing is Thursday at 9 a.m. Investigation into the case is ongoing.
