    Baton Rouge lost one of the good cops Friday. I worked with her, her brother Joe, and Ben Odom out of Winbourne Precinct. We had quite a team.
    RIP Theresa!

    Tee, it’s been a long time since I last saw you and spoke with you. I take comfort in the fact that we will one day, see one another again. My heartfelt condolences to Heidi, Joe and the entire family, for their unexpected loss of their Mom, sister and grandmother.

    Until we meet again.
