CPD Officer Thomas Wortham IV, had just returned from two tours in Iraq, as we stood at attention, his body rigid hands at his side, the tears flowed from his eyes. He was happy to be home and something tugged at his heart as we stood at attention honoring the family and friends of the Nations Law Enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty. A griefing family member came to comfort him. Commander Keith Calloway ( 7th district, to the right) moved over and quietly spoke to Officer Wortham. After the families possession ended, Commander Calloway immediately introduced the Officer to Superintendent Jody Weis. Commander Calloway told the Superintendent of the officers most recent return from Iraq and that Officer Wortham IV wanted to be there in D.C.

This photo was taken a little over 96 hours before Officer Wortham IV was shot to death in front of his parents home on Chicago's south side where he was excited to show his parents his new motorcylce.

    What a sad story, a tragic end to a fine young man's life! Prayers to his family from a retired brother.
