Police procession moves body of slain police officer Breann Leath to funeral home

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A police procession on Friday afternoon moved the body of slain officer Breann Leath from the downtown coroner’s office to Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery.

Leath was shot Thursday afternoon when responding to a domestic violence report at an east-side apartment complex.

The route was along West McCarty Street to North Illinois Street, then west on West 38th Street to the funeral home. No information has been released on when a funeral may happen.

The Central Indiana Police Foundation established a fund in honor of slain Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer Breann Leath. IMPD said the foundation will be the official fundraiser to accept donations on behalf of Leath’s family. The foundation also will assist with funeral and burial arrangements and to provide a trust for Leath’s son. Tax-deductible donations can be made by visiting the foundation’s website. Checks may be mailed to The Central Indiana Police Foundation, 1525 S Shelby Street, Indianapolis, IN 46203. Please add a note to indicate your donation is for the Breann Leath Memorial Fund.

A news release, issued Friday afternoon, about the foundation’s fund also said, “IMPD thanks the community for the outpouring of support since the tragic loss of Officer Leath. We remind members of the community who feel moved to contribute money on her behalf to ensure the funds they donate to are in line with the wishes of Officer Leath’s family. Any further announcements of opportunities to help honor Officer Leath will be made through official IMPD channels.”
