70 officers escort Ind. boy to school after dad's death

70 Indiana police officers escort son of fallen officer for first day back to school

Pitts was killed earlier this month in a shootout with a homicide suspect who later died from injuries he suffered in the crossfire, authorities said.

SULLIVAN, Ind--The son of a Terre Haute police officer killed in the line of duty was given a special trip to school Monday.

The 5-year-old son of a slain IN police officer went back to school for the first time since his father's death.

He's unlikely to forget what he saw as he walked up to the school building Monday.

A "blue line" of support helped an IN boy go back to school, after his police officer father was killed on the job.

They came from other departments as well.

But, with the Cavs former superstar point guard in street clothes on the Celtics bench, this series becomes much more interesting. In the past, Thompson has killed the Celtics on the glass, but now Boston has a player in Baynes who can match his physicality.

He wore his father's badge and was presented a SWAT shirt.

"The sorrow @FLJanetHolcomb & I feel for the family of Patrolman Rob Pitts, the Terre Haute Police Department & the Wabash Valley region is beyond words".

But he didn't go back to his IN elementary school by himself on Monday as 70 of his father's coworkers were there IN uniform to escort him.

"A student's return to school after the death of a loved one, especially a parent, is hard", she told CNN.

His family wanted that instead of taking donations themselves.

"Our hope is that Dakota's first day back to school after his father's passing is one that he will remember forever and that he will always know how much his father's sacrifice meant to all of us", she added.
