I just watched this case on the TV series "Joe Kenda: Homicide Hunter" and it was heartbreaking. The only solace I can find is that the cowardly, evil and murderous thug can never hurt another person. I salute you, Deputy Holloway, for your bravery, service and ultimate sacrifice. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, co-workers, first responders and every person that lived this nightmare. Please remember that Deputy Holloway will NEVER be forgotten and will FOREVER be a hero!
