INMATE EXECUTED FOR KILLING MUNCIE POLICE OFFICER

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — The man convicted of fatally shooting a Muncie police officer more than 16 years ago was executed early Friday.


Michael Lambert, 36, was pronounced dead at 12:29 a.m. CDT following the lethal injection procedure, Indiana State Prison spokesman Barry Nothstine said. Lambert did not offer a final statement.
Some 20 police cars arrived at the prison about two hours before the execution, bringing dozens of officers and others from Muncie and elsewhere, including LaPorte, Mishawaka, South Bend and Gary. As they awaited word of the execution, they held blue glowsticks given to them by the widow of Officer Gregg Winters to represent the “thin blue line” he was on the night he was killed.

Molly Winters hugged supporters outside the prison soon after Lambert’s death was announced and said she was relieved it was over.

“Justice has been served,” she said. “You look at all the blue lights behind you. It shows you that Gregg has not been forgotten and everything he stood for.”

As we know nothing brings them back, but to see their attackers punished brings some relief. The fallen are always on our minds.

June 15, 2007

Ask not for whom the bugle sounds,
each Officer who gives his life
takes with him a part
of who we might have been.
The bugle plays taps for all of us and
we mourn the Officer that will never
be anything more than a tug on a heart,
a memory of lost hope and
the knowledge of lost dreams.

Molly I wish there was a way to spare you the emotional turmoil these last few months/years have been with much of it coming to its peak this weekend. Remember to keep in the fore front of it all the love of friends that is surrounding and protecting you. May this give you the comfort and fortitude that you have provided to so may. Let us be here for you like you have been for us. Love and warm hugs

Molly,
I just watched the news out of Indianapolis and I am sick to my stomach thinking that you and your family may have to spend one more day, one more minute waiting for justice. I can not even imagine what you are going through right now. I am also a wife of a police officer and I pray everyday that I never have to walk down that road I was good friends with Jake Laird and I know what it is like to lose, but not the same magnitude that you lost. I want you to know that I will pray for you and your family everyday. I will pray that Gregg will finally rest in piece when they put that pathetic piece of human flesh to death. I can not even call that THING a man bc he wasn't. Please know that you are not alone and even in another 16 years from now. Know that Gregg has not been and will not be forgotten. My heart and thoughts are with you!!!!!!!

Gregg, can you believe it? Another date for justice. I can only hope and pray that this time it is done. It has been a long road but I will continue to fight every step of the way. My hope is that soon, you will be able to rest in peace for all of eternity. On June 15, justice will be done! We love you and miss you dearly. Love, Molly

Gregg,

Your sacrifice for the people of Muncie and Indiana will never be forgotten. You were a brave soul to deal with some of life's most dangerous criminals.

I pray that those on your department, in your community, in the state of Indiana, and across the nation will always respect and appreciate your sacrifice for their safety. You are a true hero.

God bless your wife, Molly, who has an unwaivering commitment to the survivors of Indiana, and to your sons who have become such strong and successful young men.

Gregg, I have never met you but it seems as if I know you from everything I have heard, from Molly and the old brass. They all have great stories of you and I wish that you were still here so I could hear the stories from you personally. I see your photo downstairs as we enter the roll call room. I just wanted you to know that "Your" Department still honors and remembers you.
Molly, I so sorry for your loss, but I want to thank you for all you have done to help people go through some of the toughest times of their lives.

Gregg, fifteen years ago today this horrible nightmare started. We do not have one day go by that we do not think of you, miss you and love you. Rest in peace and hopefully by this time next year, justice will be served. With all of our love, M, K, B

Gregg,

I had been an officer for seven years when you were killed, working here at the Anderson Police Department just a half an hour from you. I remember our department softball team playing in the fundraiser to help raise money for your family. I know that at times we cannot undertand God's plan for us and why things happen. I can say that your wife has helped thousands of survivors. I know you are working through her to make this happen. We speak of you often at our department and you have not been forgotten. I pray that God Will Bless and Keep Your Family and I know that you are still walking the beat with us. You are a true hero.

Gregg,
Although I never got a chance to know you, I just wanted to leave a reflection to let you know how much Molly has influenced me. You see, my husband was shot and killed in the line of duty on 12/13/03. Your wife was on the Indiana Critical Incident team. It goes without saying that behind the scenes, I have an idea now of how much she truly did, and to her and the rest of the team, I am eternally grateful.
Since that time, I think of Molly often. I have since moved out of state, but I still have contact with her via email and phone. I am so thankful that there are people such as herself, someone that continues to give SO much hope to police widows everywhere. There are many times that her inspiration was what kept me going. Although she doesn't know it, I truly see her as a mentor, a shining example of how I am striving to be. I only hope that as a police survivor, I can give back every bit of hope, love and faith to others, as your Molly has given me.

Thinking of you M,D and Kyle,






Thinking and praying for you, Molly and Kyle.
