Jessica Ann Nagle-Wilson

Officer Jessica Nagle-Wilson was shot and killed when she responded to an animal complaint at a house on Jarvis Street at 8:48 pm.

As she exited her patrol car, a man standing on the porch suddenly opened fire on her with a shotgun filled with No. 6 birdshot, striking her in the face, neck, and stomach. She was able to return fire and wounded the suspect. Although she was wearing her vest, she suffered fatal wounds and succumbed to her wounds at the hospital.

The suspect was taken into custody at the hospital. The man was convicted of Officer Nagle-Wilson's murder in July 2003 and sentenced to life in prison.

Officer Nagle-Wilson had served with the Hazel Park Police Department for just under two years. She is survived by her husband, who is also a police officer, parents, brother, and sister.

My heart is breaking…20 years and 4 days since I have seen you alive. We had lunch at Apple Annie’s. I can’t remember where I ate last week but I can remember 20 years ago. In fact I can remember the day you left us as if it was yesterday. Time does not take that away. The pain and loss is controlled but days like today make it very hard to hold it together. We will be celebrating your life on Sunday so I better get my <redacted> together.

You are loved, you are missed, you are remembered

Love and miss you forever
Mom
