Tiberi Honors Kirkersville Police Chief Steven DiSario
Today, Congressman Pat Tiberi delivered the following remarks on the House floor:
“Mr. Speaker, this week is Police Week, a time we honor all our officers, especially those who have fallen in the line of duty to keep us safe.
“So I rise today to honor and remember Kirkersville Police Chief Steven DiSario.
“Chief Disario, a father of six with a baby on the way, was killed in the line of duty on May 12, 2017. He died at the hands of a gunman who also killed two employees of a local nursing home, Marlina Medrano and Cindy Krantz.
“This is a tragedy that truly tests the strength of a community, the strength of neighbors and the strength of our law enforcement. To Chief DiSario’s family, I can’t imagine the grief and the anguish you must feel. We are heartbroken for your loss.
“Please know that your husband, your father, your son, was an American hero. His memory will never be forgotten and it is there that I pray you find hope. Today and every day, may God bless you and all our police officers and their families.
“I yield back.”
