Widow of Slain Tampa Officer Delivers Stillborn Baby Girl

Laura McElroy | Tampa PD PIO

July 22, 2010

JULY 21 | TAMPA, FL – Sara Kocab was nine months pregnant when her husband, Jeffrey Kocab was murdered on June 29, 2010. Sarah went into labor today and delivered the couple’s first child: a stillborn baby girl named Lilly Nicole.

The Tampa police department released a statement today on behalf of Sara Kocab. It reads as follows, “Sara Kocab and her family would like to thank the countless people who have shown their support and care during these past few weeks.

Sara delivered Lilly Nicole this morning. Sara and her family have known during the pregnancy that Lilly Nicole had a major abnormality that could result in Lilly being stillborn or only able to live a limited time after delivery. There is no medical treatment for this abnormality.

Tragically, Lilly Nicole was delivered stillborn early this morning July 21, 2010.

The family thanks you for your continued prayer and support. They kindly request that you respect the family’s privacy during this time.

At the family’s request, this will be the only information released from the Tampa Police Department. We will not be conducting any interviews on the topic.

    Ill fall to my knees and pray for the Lords strength to be delivered to this Young Lady and her Family and Friends. My heart aches for them, but take comfort in knowing that Lilly Nicole is with her father, who is with our father, who lives for all eternity in heaven.
