Officer Crayon added to legacy

Special Section
        The name of Cincinnati Police Officer Kevin Crayon was one of those read aloud Sunday in Washington, D.C., during the 13th Annual Candlelight Vigil at the National Law Enforcement Memorial. The ceremony salutes police officers killed on duty.

        The reading of the names newly engraved on the memorial — which bears more than 1,500 names — followed a speech by U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft.

        Officer Crayon was one of 150 police officers killed in the United States during 2000, a 10 percent increase over the 134 killed in 1999.

        Officer Crayon, 40, a father of three, died Sept. 1 on Colerain Avenue in Mount Airy after he was dragged by a car driven by a 12-year-old boy. The officer shot the boy, Courtney Mathis, in the process; the child later died.

        The candlelight vigil kicked off the observance of National Police Week.
