Detective Kristen Hearne: The final farewell (a photo gallery).

Patricia Tinney Brewer speaks to the packed Victory Baptist Church on Tuesday, holding her grandson Isaac, who lost his mother Kristen Hearne in Friday’s ambush in Polk County. From Facebook, where more than 33,000 people viewed part of the FB Live telecast (requested by her family).
Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd talkes about Kristen Hearne, calling her a daughter to him. He closes an emotional tribute with: “If you’re a believer in Jesus, you’re going to see Kristen again … I’d like to thank the family for sharing her with us… May Good bless each and every law enforcement agency here … and may god bless the United States of America.”
