Detective Hunt,
You are my second cousin, my Grandfather Hale W. Hunt, was your Uncle. I learned about you while doing some genealogy on our family. You passed before I was born but I wish I knew you. This week, I spent a day in Los Angeles and I found your star at the PD and your name on the star at the Memorial. I also drove to find your street sign and I saw your picture on the wall at the PD. I am the Chairperson of a Community Group supporting LEOs. We Back the Blue. I am proud of you and the hard work that our Officers do to keep us safe. I wish I would have known about the dedication ceremony. I would have come. I am making a point to educate my children and others about you and share your story. Rest in Peace.
