I watch the First 48 all the time. And then one day I stop seeing
Officer Smith. I wondered where he was. I didn't know his name but I missed seeing him. Then one day I noticed that at the end of one of the First 48 episode it was dedicated to him. I didn't see his picture so I was hoping it wasn't him. Tonight I was looking up BK Nelson and found an article about how he died. I found a picture of him on line. Lord Lord I hate that you had to go, but from me to you and your family you are really missed. Rest in peace.
