Officer Jeremiah Hurley was killed while investigating a call regarding a suspicious package in a residential neighborhood. During the investigation the package exploded, killing him and wounding the other officer on the scene.

The bomb had been attached to the bottom of a car and fell off in the driveway. The bomb builder was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, but that conviction was overturned and he was re-sentenced in 2007 to serve 37 years. In August of 2008 a federal appeals court reinstated the life sentence.

Officer Hurley had served with the agency for 23 years. He was survived by his wife, two daughters, two stepsons, and two grandchildren.

No Emotion No More Than a Wave can Retain it's Own Original Form.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
