[MD] Cop-on-Cop domestic double-murder victims Officers Vazquez & Holliday

December 28, 2005

Today was the funeral of Baltimore Polce Officer Adam Vazquez, killed along with his new girlfriend Officer Leslie Holliday, in a double murder by Leslie's ex-fiancee, Department of General Services Police Officer Eugene Victor Perry Jr., on December 21st.

EXCERPT from New York Times:
...After the funeral Mass, Officer Vazquez's coffin was carried out and loaded into a hearse and a 5-year-old cousin pierced the gloomy scene.

"I'm going to miss you, Adam,"
she screamed between sobs.
"I don't want him to go.
I didn't want him to die."

Officer Vazquez's father erupted in tears. The stern faces of the men in the honor guard crumpled... At the burial, in Green-Wood Cemetery, family, friends and tough-looking guys from the neighborhood gathered around as an honor guard bugler blew taps into the dim winter sky. The coffin was lowered nine feet into the ground.

The little cousin again cried out
and tried to throw herself
on his grave...

Good-bye Officer Vasquez.
May your people find
some strands of comfort
in their memories of you.
