    From Kay ElJay's link:

    "He said Elahi was in his late 20s, had worked for him about four years, and was engaged to the mother of his toddler-age daughter."

    "His funeral will be at 2 p.m. Thursday at North Monroe Baptist Church, Bonner said."

    "David was probably the hardest-working individual I've ever met," Bonner said. He said Elahi had two part-time businesses — real estate and renting inflatable "bounce houses" — and had planned to go to part-time police work at the end of July so he could work full-time at real estate."

    "He was devoted to his daughter and to his parents, Bonner said."

    "His father has some health issues, and David's always been there for him."

    "He said he can't remember ever seeing Elahi in a bad mood."

    "He was a beautiful, beautiful young man."


    RIP Officer Elahi

    This tragedy happened in a neighboring town. Only a short distance from where I live. My SIL, who was a deputy in a neighboring parish, worked with him several times when he came to help out. He was greatly loved and respected in our area. I know his family and the Sterlington Police Department would consider it a blessing that David was honored here today. Thank you.

    Very sad. RIP. He shouldn't be out on bail, he should be treated like a murderer, because thats what drink drivers are. You're attempting murder just getting behind the wheel drunk. You know what can happen. It's a deliberate action.
