Sergeant Shaun Keen was described as a ‘proud’ family man found the body of Police Constable Kimberley James at her home.
Both officers worked at Devon & Cornwall Police they were dedicated to their community and will be a great loss.
She had just taken her own life in July. SGT Keen was her boyfriend at the time, weeks later he took his own life. The heartbreak was simply too much for the highly regarded cop.
Hero PC James had received a bravery award in 2015 for saving a mother and child from drowning. Details of the double deaths only emerged this week at an inquest.
She had been struggling police life, her work load and felt her bosses were “out to get her”.
Weeks later SGT Keen was found dead, details of his death in August have not been released.
This is very tragic and our thoughts are with the family of both PC James and SGT Keen.
