The Fort Worth Star Telegram's Crime Time blog had this bit that is worth noting. It seems that three officers were in a DFW area IHOP recently on their meal break when this happened:
“We were just in IHOP having dinner and getting ready to pay when our waitress told us that someone took care of our check,” the message read. “We asked her who so we could thank them and she pointed to a young girl who couldn’t have been more than 15 years old. When we left we stopped to talk to her. She introduced herself as KayLeigh Nava, Hank’s daughter. She thanked us with tears in her eyes for what we do. Just thought everybody should know that.”
KayLeigh Nava's father Hank Nava was a Fort Worth Police officer shot and killed on duty in 2005.
I bet she wasn't the only one with tears in their eyes in that IHOP.
