Today I was driving through Iowa and saw a bridge dedicated to Detective Kerrie Orozco. I took the time to look up who she was and how she died. It is particularly sad that she died on her last day of work before scheduled maternity leave.

Thank you for your service Detective Orozco

Regular citizen, Rick
