Officer McCord was a Vice and Narcotics Detective who was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a suspected drug dealer on Traction Avenue. As the suspect resisted arrest he shot Officer McCord and shot and seriously wounded her partner. The suspect turned himself in a short time later. He was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death. In 1985 he received a new trial and was sentenced to life without parole.

She was the first female Alabama Police Officer killed in the line of duty.

With our hero's getting killed I had you on my mind. I still remember the day that you was taken. It was the first time that I saw my dad cry. You will never be forgotten Detective McCord.
