WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Under a pink-hued sunset sky with church bells tolling, a procession of law enforcement vehicles at least a mile long followed the hearse carrying the body of Wildlife Conservation Officer David Grove down Main Street to a cemetery on Sunday.
At least 1,500 people, including hundreds of officers representing law enforcement agencies from Washington to Maine, along with Gov. Rendell, crowded into Waynesboro Regional High School to pay their respects to Grove, who was shot and killed while responding to a case of poaching near Gettysburg on Nov. 11.
