Fiancee of slain Tacoma officer shares her grief in hope of helping others heal
PIERCE COUNTY -- In the days and weeks to come, we will learn more and more about what happened the night Deputy Daniel McCartney was killed. But there’s one woman in Pierce County who says she knows more than most about what his family is going through and what is yet to come. If anyone can understand what it means to lose a loved one in the line of duty, it’s Rebecca Humphrey. Just over one year ago, Humphrey’s fiancé, Tacoma police officer Reginald "Jake" Gutierrez, was shot and killed while responding to a domestic violence call. It happened just four days before the couple was to be married.
