So sad, I have been hearing about this on the local News a lot lately; someone murders the victim & then commits suicide.
Rest In Peace, Officer Coward. Thank you for servicing your community in Livingston, Texas during the three years of being in the force. May God bless your three children who survived. You are a true heroine, not just for the community but for your children too in 2008.
