The suspect was apprehended and sentenced to life.

The officers were partners until the end, having joined the Department together twenty years earlier. Officer Kilroy is survived by his mother.

I was thiinking of both you and PO Hauser while sitting in church today. I was watching all the smiling, happy faces as the little flowers were passed out to all the moms. The minister was trying to thread in bible passages to coincide with Mothers Day and encouraging all the children to help their mothers. But I did not hear it. I was thinking about the two of you, your plans to spend the day after work and all the days afterwards. Then I had a tear or two and had to stop thinking about it before I would be noticed. I remembered the evening news on one particular Morthers Day years ago reporting two policeman died while helping a mother trying to control her out of control grandson. I knew I had to come here and thank each of you and offer my thanks and condolences to your family and friends.
