Although being a police officer has never been simple, more of these unsung heroes have died in recent years while on the beat. Additionally, some regions of the nation’s support for law enforcement has declined, making it more difficult for them to accomplish their jobs. Now, two officers who had been responding to a welfare check at a nearby motel have perished in the line of duty.
Estorffe passed away from his injuries at a neighboring hospital while Robin perished at the site. Anderson was murdered by a bullet fired by one of the officers, contrary to original allegations that she committed suicide. The eight-year-old daughter of Anderson was in the front seat of the car at the time of the accident.
A full investigation is being conducted, and the officers will shortly be laid to rest in a combined funeral by the city.
The daughter of Anderson, whose name has not been made public, was unharmed.
At a press conference on Thursday morning, Bay St. Louis Police Chief Toby Schwartz stated, “A tragedy occurred here today in the city of Bay St. Louis as two of our finest officers’ lives were taken. We are gathering facts and will ensure a thorough investigation into this matter.”
According to her Facebook page, Anderson recently began working as an emergency veterinarian at the round-the-clock veterinary clinic MedVet Mobile with an emphasis on small animals.
She also worked at the Lakeview Animal Hospital in D’Iberville, Mississippi, according to the information she provided on her Facebook page, which also states that she is unmarried and is crammed with joyful images of kids, dogs, and travel.
Then in April, she wrote about her family’s enjoyable trip to Maui.
