On April 2, Capitol Police officer William Evans was killed on duty protecting a barricade near the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC when a driver beat him and another officer outside the U.S. Senate in Washington.
After Officer Evans was honored earlier this week at the U.S. Capitol, he was transported to Bradley International Airport. Connecticut State Police escorted the body to North Adams, Massachusetts, where it is buried in Bellevue Cemetery.
He was affectionately referred to as the “King of the North” by his peers, according to an article from Hearst Connecticut Media lovingly known as Billy Evans. Connecticut State Police Soldier Josue Dorelus told WSFB-TV:
At times like this we must come together as a family, come together as a nation and support one another.
Officer Billy Evans loved the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots, and all kinds of board games. He is survived by his children Logan (9) and Abigail (7).
