    This seems off to me. I feel terrible for Katlyn and her family. She certainly didn't deserve to die. But she was also clearly doing a few things she absolutely shouldn't have been doing. I am sure there are other officers that may be deserving of this award. To me, this seems like an attempt by the SLPD to appease Katlyn's family.

    ST. LOUIS — Running into a burning building to save lives, chasing down and arresting armed criminals as well as building bridges with the youth in the city's most violent police district are among the deeds that earned Officer Katlyn Alix the title of North Patrol's Officer of the Year this week — an honor that came months after police say she was killed by a fellow officer.
    [...]

    Alix, 24, earned Officer of the Month awards in September and October for the Sixth District.

    [...]

    "She was the epitome of community policing, a consummate professional who was invaluable to this department," Hessel read.

    The crowd rose to their feet at the conclusion of Hessel's presentation as Capt. Perri Johnson accepted the award on her behalf.

    I noticed the "partner" referenced during the award ceremony was Katlyn's partner from the 6th district -- where she served before transferring to where her "friends" worked.

    No winners .... MOO

    And no mention of her parents being there. You would think they would have accepted the award on her behalf. Or her husband.

    I gotta' be honest: The very last person I would expect to accept that award on her behalf would be her husband.

    I feel horribly for that man. Talk about a complicated bereavement.

    You may be right. Yep, very rough situation for him. I really wonder what he knew. But he must feel betrayed in so many ways on top of grieving.

    Seems her first husband (3 month marriage) shared similar experience... but also grieves KA just the same.

    “Despite everything, she really did have a heart of gold … she truly was an amazing woman.

    “We are all human. We all have made mistakes. Some people are defined by those mistakes. But not Katy.

    Hendren had a status hearing Friday morning. You could see a stark contrast inside the courtroom. On the left, you could only see Hendren’s two attorneys. Hendren did not show up to court Friday. He is out on bond.

    On the right, three rows of friends and family in support of Officer Katelyn Alix. Some were wearing “Justice for Katelyn Alix” shirts.

    [...]

    The judge seemed frustrated at one point, saying he saw no reason depositions couldn’t have been scheduled months ago. He set another court date for October 25, 2019.

    While I agree with this decision, I'm surprised the Union isn't all over this -- aren't officers usually placed on administrative leave pending outcome of trial?

    I think he did probably resign on his own volition.

    I did find where both Hendren and his partner were on paid admin leave-- with Hendren later suspended without pay.

    Both were placed on paid administrative leave following the shooting, which is standard procedure any time an officer is involved in a shooting. Hendren was suspended without pay Monday, Woodling said. His partner remains on administrative leave.

    I'm confused. Is he in contempt now for failure to appear, or was he not required to appear?
