MOODY — The Moody Area Chamber of Commerce presented Moody Police Chief Thomas Hunt with a check at its July luncheon, in support of a fallen officers memorial Hunt would like to build.
The $3,600 from the chamber was raised from the sale of “We Support Moody Police” signs.
The memorial Hunt plans to build at the police department will be in the name of Officer Keith Turner and in the name of Lt. Stephen Williams.
Turner was killed on Saturday, June 27, 1998, after stopping a stolen vehicle on County Highway 10. Two escapees from Mississippi were in the vehicle and had already shot and wounded an officer in Tuscaloosa when Turner attempted to stop them.
Williams was killed on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, while responding to a disturbance call at the Super 8 off Moody Parkway.
Both officers’ deaths represent moments in time that will not be forgotten by law enforcement officers and citizens across the state of Alabama.
