Trooper Butterfield's Funeral

About 3,000 people gathered together on Saturday in Manistee to remember and pay respects to state trooper Paul Butterfield. According to multiple reports, every state in America sent a law enforcement officer to support our local tragedy. Governor Rick Snyder was one of the speakers at the funeral for the fallen officer. Today marks one week of Butterfield's murder.

The two accused suspects of the crime are currently lodged at the Mason County Jail.  Eric and Sarah Knysz are now facing lifetime penalties--if convicted.  Their first court appearance is scheduled for September 25th.
