Funerals of Ind. officers killed in biking event could draw thousands

The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS- This week's funerals for two police officers killed during a charity bike ride could rank among the largest such funerals in Indiana history. Danny Overley of the Indiana Fraternal Order of Police says the funerals are expected to draw thousands of mourners from across the nation.

Lieutenant Gary Dudley, commander of the Indiana State Police Academy, and retired Lake County Police Chief Gary Martin were struck and killed last Tuesday in a chain-reaction crash. Martin's funeral is Monday in Lake County. Dudley's is Tuesday in Brownsburg. Overley says Dudley and Martin's funerals were planned so mourners could attend both.

Keith Gill, president of the Indiana State Police Alliance, says law enforcement groups from New Jersey to New Mexico have contacted the alliance seeking details about the funerals.
