Such a shame to be killed by a careless driver who hit the officers patrol car so hard that he killed the K9 Champ AND an innocent pedestrian and gave this Officer fatal injuries too! Naturally he lived. I hope justice is served and that driver is incarcerated for a very long time. Maybe I will be lucky enough to mett both K9 Champ and this fine Officer and be able to be assigned to the same unit as they are. May God Bless and keep them and his family in his arms.

How sad that once again we will bury a shining blue star who leaves behind a family and no doubt an agency that will grieve the loss of this twenty year veteran and his K9 partner. I have no doubt that Officer Muhlbauer was a valued member of the Kansas City, Mo. department whose loss will leave a chasm, not only for the PD but for the entire community. May God rest his soul and bless his family, now devastated by his loss.
