Kevin Scott Will

Police Officer Kevin Will was struck and killed by a drunk driver as he investigated a hit-and-run accident involving a motorcyclist on the Loop 610 North, near Yale Street, at approximately 3:15 am.

Officer Will was interviewing a witness to the motorcycle accident when the drunk driver drove around barriers and emergency vehicles that were blocking the closed freeway. Seeing the vehicle approach, Officer Will warned the witness to jump out of the way. The citizen was able to jump to safety moments before Officer Will was struck and killed.

The driver was taken into custody at the scene and was charged with intoxicated manslaughter for Officer Will's death. It was later discovered that the suspect had entered and was living in the United States illegally. He pleaded guilty to intoxicated manslaughter and on June 8, 2012, was sentenced to 55 years in prison.

Officer Will had served with the Houston Police Department for almost two years. He is survived by his expectant wife, two children, parents, and brother.

I'm sitting here going through ODMP, reading stories of those who gave their all, who lost their lives, and the effect it's had on so many, how so many stories, so many lives, and so many deaths intertwine and connect to others...you just never know. I sometimes read these pages, to remember and honor those lost, to pray for those left behind, to remind myself that every day I put on this uniform, I could be next.

Even though I never knew you, I will never forget you, the stories I've been told about you, about the good man, husband, and step-father that you were, the father you never got to be to your son, those will never be forgotten.

RIP brother.
