INDIANAPOLIS — The parents of fallen Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Breann Leath posted a message to the community on YouTube on Tuesday.

Leath's parents, Tom and Jennifer Leath, posted the message on Tuesday.

"We just wanted to tell everybody that we appreciate the thoughts and the words of encouragement everyone has been sending us," Jennifer Leath said. "We appreciate the space that everyone has been giving us to just take it in and grieve and try to process a huge loss that we have.

I know Breann loved this city and she loved what she did. As a mom it's a big deal to see your children recognize their lifelong dreams and Breann did it. She did what she wanted to do and she lived the way she wanted."
