UT Tower sniper hero's daughter joins police force

 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The daughter of the Austin police officer who fatally shot University of Texas Tower sniper Charles Whitman has now joined the Austin Police Department herself.

Monika McCoy is the 42-year-old daughter of Houston McCoy, who shot Whitman dead and ended the slaughter that left 16 people dead and 32 others wounded.

The mother of two sons says her children had been her priority. Now that they're grown, she says she's pursuing a career path that has been her dream since childhood.

Monika McCoy was one of 33 cadets to receive their badges on Friday. Her father didn't live to see the day, having died a year ago at age 73. But Monika McCoy says she's sure that he and her mother are proud of her from beyond.
