Officer Gary Bevel was shot six times and killed as he attempted to arrest a woman who had made a false report about damage to her car.

The suspect was sentenced to death in four separate trials, but each sentence was overturned by the Florida Supreme Court and her sentence was subsequently commuted to life in prison with the eligibility of parole. In February 2007 her parole request was denied. Her parole was denied again in 2011.

I just saw the program where your story was shown. It's just so sad that a senseless no heart monster had to take your life. You died doing your job and for that, we appreciate you to the highest. I wonder where your rank with the Police Dept. would've been today, I know it would've been high, but that's alright, you are now in Heaven protecting God and his fellow angels such as you..Continue to fly high and protect..You are my hero..
