A Texas company donated custom caskets for three officers who were killed in Baton Rouge by a man targeting police.
Trey Ganem Designs spent hours researching each fallen officer, speaking to his family and designing his casket. On Thursday morning, the caskets were escorted by dozens of local officers to Louisiana.
Baton Rouge police Corporal Montrell Jackson, Officer Matthew Gerald and Deputy Brad Garafola Sr. of the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office were gunned down last Sunday outside a gas station by a man targeting police.
“This is just heartbreaking that it happened but we want to try to help the families,” Ganem said.
A year ago, Ganem converted his custom car shop in Edna to a custom casket shop. Edna is about 90 miles southwest of Houston.
