I feel bad for the officers but respect that they had to do their job and protect the public and themselves. Pull a gun on the police and expect to pay the price. It sounds like the officers used good judgement and tried to use common sense by backing out so no one else in the house would get hurt but she followed them and provoked them by pointing a handgun at them. All in all the officers went home, thank god.

Something is being omitted in the articles. If police where called at 1130 pm and she was pronounced dead at 600am what happened in those 6 1/2 hours go?

Because this was a homocide scene involving an officer involved shooting, HHPD turned the investigation over to the Illinois State Police, Medics were called to the scene at once and she was pronounced DOA by a doctor in contact with the medics on the radio. It was also a crime scene and everything had to photographed and a timeline of what took place and everyone had to be interviewed. This takes a lot of time and the Medical Examiner cannot remove the body until all of this is done. HHPD is to be commended for a proper and non bias investigation under very difficult conditions. As for your something is being omitted comment this investigation is going to take a long time to complete and HHPD and the State Police will release information when they think it is proper to do so. Their is nothing being omitted. The officers have rights to. Don,t think that this is like a TV show and its over in an hour.
