An officer and a funeral
Above: Central Michigan University Police Chief Bill Yeagley talks to university officials on his cell phone as two firefighters prepare to enter Dow Science Complex to contain the contaminated area Aug. 28. Read senior reporter Jake Bolitho's full story on Bill Yeagley.
Also, here is the story I wrote on the chemical exposure for the Web site as it happened.
Right: Jason Denslow solemnly holds the American flag given to him after a funeral for his son, Det. Sgt. Dan Denslow, who served at the Isabella County Sheriff's Department for 34 years. He died Aug. 4 in Lansing at Sparrow Hospital of internal bleeding complications following a surgery. He was being treated at the facility for two months, and was in serious condition the last five weeks. “He was always smiling, always trying to get people to laugh with a very welcoming personality and never had a bad thing to say, only kind words. That’s Dan,” said Bill Yeagley, Central Michigan University Police Chief.
Here is a link to the initial story I wrote before his funeral. I also wrote a followup, but it seems to have been lost in the Web site transition. Hopefully, it comes up soon.
