I worked at the Anadarko P.D a few yrs ago and Ashley was just the nicest man. He was the first officer to make me feel welcome. I'm just stunned and saddened by this terrible news. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this most difficult time.

I'm from Anadarko, I know Ashley and his family. My heart goes out to the little ones he left behind. One thing I can't understand is why the heck did Anadarko police dept ask to have osbi investigate and why are they doing an autopsy? We all know of the recent so called domestic issues, but why bother the family anymore? He committed suicide and its tragic!

You know that was just damn stupid, you wanna say things like that but I notice u make it the way a child would. He had a family, wife and 2 small kids! They might read that someday. Let it be known that Ashley Scott Burrus was a hard ass, but he kept our streets safe at night. RIP and prayers for the kiddos. Out of respect if you can't say nothing nice then keep your damn ugly thoughts to yourself! Your blatant disregard for the people in morning of this man, shows me that the world has really gone to crap thanks to idiots like you!

Heart broken, spent a lot of time with him when I lived in Anadarko, a few years back. That was when He still was working at the casino. Must say I'm really at a loss right now, stunned really doesn't described it. We must keep his children in constant prayer. Prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

He gave me more than one warnings but didn't strut his stuff. It's good that he seemed to be on the up and up..

You know, you should be ashasmed of yourself! How dare you say that!! He was a decent man and well respected and for you to tarnish his image and have no consideration for him, a human being, and his family and what they are going through, is completely and utterly unacceptable and I hope when your day of judgement comes, this comes back on you. RIP Ashley.

it's the law that when anyone dies unattended (meaning not under a drs care) that they have an autopsy. i assume they had the osbi to investigate it b/c it involves the apd and would be a conflict of interest.
so very very sad

please disregard mr. mercer's comments....he's just 'that guy', and as they say....'don't feed the trolls'.

it's a real shame that some folks get off on posting vile things on pages that are so heart wrenching. i guess we're different than that guy b/c we were raised better.

I reported the Mercer poster yesterday as 'Abuse'. Topix say they take up to 3 days to review. Here's hoping his comments are gone soon.

For you to sit there and say sh** like that about him, you
are a disgrace to humanity, you don't know him. Even though I never met him, still he was an officer, a father, a husband, brother, uncle,etc.

So here is a little bit advice a scum bag like you does not have a decent life, he breaks laws, and don't give a damn. Well you big fat JACK*** KARMA will get you MERCER.

Grow up show respect!!!

Let's please focus on Ashley's family, friends, fellow officers and the community that does feel the sorrow of this tragic loss.
