THOUSANDS HONOR FALLEN MOBILE POLICE OFFICER SEAN TUDER
An emotional day in Mobile as Sean Tuder’s friends, family and fellow officers said goodbye.
A procession of vehicles estimated at eight miles long made its way through Mobile. A memorial service was held for the 31-year-old police officer before his funeral.
Investigators said Tuder was alone and not wearing a bulletproof vest while working undercover last week when he tried to apprehend a suspect wanted on numerous charges, 19-year-old Marco Perez. Tuder was shot and killed around 2 p.m. on Jan. 20 at Peach Place Inn in West Mobile.
He is survived by his wife, Krissy.
