INDIANAPOLIS — Several hundred police officers from around the state and nation have filed past the casket of a slain Indianapolis police officer as part of a day of funeral services Thursday, Sept. 26.

Ralph Tobias says he traveled to Indianapolis from Officer Rod Bradway’s northern Indiana hometown of Nappanee with a busload of other residents to pay their respects. Tobias says Bradway died as a hero when he was shot after kicking in an apartment door in response to screams from a woman held at gunpoint by an ex-boyfriend.

A police honor guard saluted Bradway’s widow and teenage son and daughter as they were escorted into the Bankers Life Fieldhouse before Thursday’s funeral. The service will be followed by a 20-mile procession through much of the city to Crown Hill Cemetery.



 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
