Pea ridge officer Kevin Apple 1212 was ran over and killed during a "routine " traffic stop
His assailant was a 22yr old female w purple hair. His end of watch was 6-26-21 in a gas station parking lot. He was ran over and I pronounced him dead. Ending his 23yr career. She fled the scene , however she was pursuid by a local wrecker driver giving us updates until officers could join in and take the suspects into custody. I've worked thousands of deaths, but this is a total different animal. Our last line of duty death in my county was in 98.

It has been a honor to be a part of this investigation and send off. It was surreal to transport him to our crime lab. I was directly behind our motorcycle team w nearly 100 officers behind me on a empty interstate for nearly 600 mile escort. We gave him the best send off possible. The funeral possession was over miles long and had officers from Chicago new York Florida Texas and our border states. It was a honor to have a major part in this. Just hope we don't do another for a very long time. If you have been apart of one of these you know what I mean.

Be safe everyone life can be over in a second.

What a tragedy. Any insight as to why the girl ran him over, on drugs/in possession and not wanting to be caught?

Very sad indeed. This crusade against law enforcement officers has got to be stopped.
