Memorial in place for fallen ETX officer

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A permanent memorial is now in place for an East Texas Police Officer, killed in an alleged domestic dispute.

In Longview, officers dedicated a permanent memorial for officer Ellen Goodan. Goodan was shot and killed last December.

Longview Police arrested her husband, Harry Goodan.

Goodan's son Nicholas helped unveil the memorial plaque.

Family members say the memorial is a fitting way to remember Officer Goodan's dedication.

"I was really glad that people were able to honor her still, I'm glad there's a place for people to come to not only at her grave but here as well," says Goodan's sister Julie Olson.

Materials for the memorial were donated.

Harry Goodan is still charged with his wife's murder.

He's waiting for a trial date.
