JoAnn's death was a shock. We canvassed the entire area for any evidence and searched for her missing revolver.

Her parents were devasted, but were so gracious for the support they received from the County PD, Chief Battelle, and BackStoppers.

I never met JoAnn, but all who knew her and worked with her in the 1st Precinct, were in shock and disbelief.

May you rest in Honored Glory, we will never forget you.
