Officer Killed Along with 3 Others in Wisconsin Laid to Rest
WESTON, Wis. (AP) – Hundreds of law enforcement officers are among those who have gathered to pay respects to a Wisconsin detective killed in the line of duty along with three others in northern Wisconsin.
The officers, in step, approach the open casket at D.C. Everest High School where they slowly salute Jason Weiland, killed a week ago when encountering a man accused of also fatally shooting two bank employees and an attorney. The officers from far away jurisdictions are gathered in a demonstration of unity and brotherhood.
They join family, friends, and acquaintances packed into the gym. Weiland is survived by his wife Kara and two daughters, Ella and Anna. One of the girls stepped up to the podium at the funeral Wednesday and told the crowd memories of her dad, including camping and their father-daughter dance.
