As you remember these fallen officers, take comfort in recalling that they dedicated their lives to the same principles of honor, duty and courage that brought you to the badge. Such a life is truly rich. Take strength in knowing that when an officer falls, our resolve to serve those in need is not diminished. Our dedication to protecting those in danger is not weakened. Our commitment to remembering those with whom we shared the badge does not fade.
Godspeed, brothers and sisters. You fought the good fight. Now rest in peace…
Miss.-- A Forrest County man was charged with two counts of capital murder today in connection with the Sunday night slaying of two Wiggins police officers.
Ronald Husband, 46, of the Maxie community, was charged in the deaths of Officers Odell Fite, 48, and Brandon Breland, 23. They were gunned down Sunday night while responding to a domestic disturbance call on First Street in Wiggins.
"I am 99 percent sure he is the suspect who did the shooting last night," Wiggins Police Chief Buddy Bell said of Husband.
