Dear Mossbrucker Family:

I was a college intern in the investigations section at the Jefferson Co. Sheriff's Department the day Sgt. Mossbrucker was killed. I helped videotape the interview of his killer. At the time, I was overwhelmed with the enormity of the incident and the loss your family suffered. It really made me rethink a career in law enforcement. What I experienced in the days that followed; the true passion of the deputies investigating the murders, the outpouring of support from the community and the courage and strength you all showed pushed me back on course. Now, after 20 years in law enforcement and with a family of my own, I still think of that day, Sgt. Mossbrucker and you all. I am so sorry for the sacrifice you endured to keep our community safe. Thank you.
