Mourners Pay Respect To Two Slain Miami Officers

Associated Press

January 24, 2011

MIAMI, Fla. — Florida Gov. Rick Scott and thousands of law enforcement officers are expected at a funeral service for two fallen Miami-Dade County police officers.

A motorcade of police officers from almost every city in Florida will make its way from Vista Memorial Gardens to the AmericanAirlines Arena in downtown Miami, beginning at 9 a.m. Monday. The service is planned for 11 a.m.

The officers – 41-year-old Roger Castillo and 44-year-old Amanda Haworth – were killed Thursday while serving a warrant to a suspected killer, 22-year-old Johnny Simms.

Simms was killed by another officer.

Haworth, a single mother, leaves behind a 13-year-old son. Castillo, whose wife is also a Miami-Dade police officer, is survived by three sons, ages 9 to 15.
