PONTIAC -- The family of a Central Illinois police officer killed last week has a new source of healing. Officer Casey Kohlmeier and his K-9, Draco, were killed by a drunk driver last month. But, the community is stepping in to help the family move forward.
OAKFORD -- A dog breeder is helping a family heal. Sarah Atterberry often gets emails from potential buyers. But, last week, she got a special request. A girl named Riley was looking for a new dog.
Her brother, a Pontiac police officer, and his K-9 died in an accident. Thursday night, Atterberry gave the family a Belgian sheepdog which looks remarkably like Draco, the K-9 killed by a drunk driver.
