Hundreds line up to pay tribute to fallen NYPD officers

NEW YORK — For nearly six days, Tatyana and Leonid Timoshenko held vigil at the hospital bedside of their only son, Russel, praying the 23-year-old police officer would wake up and recover from his grave gunshot wounds.

He never did.

The day after three men were arraigned on charges that they killed the Belarus-born officer, the Timoshenkos again sat by their son's side - this time in the front pew of a funeral chapel for his wake.
