Slain officer’s family receives condolence letterJuly 6, 2018
By The Associated Press
TERRE HAUTE — The family of a western Indiana police officer killed in a May shootout has received a letter of condolence from President Donald Trump.
The president’s letter mentions Terre Haute Police Officer Rob Pitts’ three children and says that he “will forever be remembered for his commitment to protecting and serving the people of Indiana.”
Pitts’ brother says the personal touch of naming his brother’s children — Dakota, Brooke and Austin — makes the letter that’s signed by the president and first lady more special.
Greg Pitts tells the Tribune-Star that his family was surprised and proud when they recently received the letter, calling it “a humbling experience.”
Pitts died in a May 4 shootout with a 21-year-old man wanted for questioning in another killing. He also died in the shootout.
