Thousands mourn slain LAPD officer
Question of the Day
Thousands of mourners gather Wednesday for the funeral of a Riverside police officer believed to have been gunned down a week ago by ex-Los Angeles policeman Christopher Dorner.
Uniformed police officers packed Grove Community Church to mourn Officer Michael Crain, 34, The Daily Mail reports.Speakers praised the officer's 11 years of service with the Riverside police, and his wife, Regina Crain, spoke of their relationship as perfect, The Mail reports.
"Every day got better, every day we renewed our love and I knew how much he loved me and how much he loved those babies," she said, referring to their son, Ian, 10, and 4-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn.
Mr. Crain, a former Marine, will be buried at Riverside National Cemetery.
Just Tuesday, Christopher Dorner was believed to have died in a burning cabin in Big Bear, Calif., after a San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy was fatally shot and another critically injured in an exchange of gunfire.
The police said on Tuesday that they were almost certain the burned body found inside the cabin was Mr. Dorner, but have not yet confirmed the reports.
