I rember JoAnn Liscombe as if it was yesterday. I come from a family that was not perfect and she helped me as a juvenile. I witnessed her with her murderer that cold night and miss her strength. Tonight, another St. Louis County officer Langsdorf has lost his life. I want you to know I turned out alright and will always remember your sacrifice.
