It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that the tragic death of Lydia Simburger was a loss to all of us. Lydia was our 24 year old newest addition to our police force. She came to us with a great resume, infectious smile, and wonderful attitude. When I asked her how things were going, she indicated she loved the job and the community. She was a focused professional that took her responsibilities as a law enforcement officer seriously but carried out her duties in a thoughtful, caring manner. That is validated by the many compliments I received from the community about Lydia.
My heart goes out to Chief Leo and Kim Simburger, I know the pain of losing a child.
