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.

    Oh my God, how much pain must this family have to endure? Sara is in my prayers. I just wish that I could do more than express my heartfelt condolences.

    Have to admit this brought a tear. And just scares the heck out of me for the wife of the Mountie missing up in Yukon; she's due to deliver their first child in a couple weeks or so and he's still missing. Two tears....just wish there were some way to take some of these women's grief off them...

    My prayers are with the Kocab family. I can't imagine what they have been going through over the past several weeks.
