Trooper Memorial Moved From Corsicana To Athens

The Trooper monument for KC Winn, JR, and Larry Hobson was moved from Corsicana to Athens today, where they were stationed.

In a re-dedication ceremony, family members, friends, and members of law enforcement gathered to pay their respects and honor these two heroes.

"I just think it's wonderful that they have brought them home," said Trooper Winn's widow, Melba Winn. "It's nice to be remembered you know, I wish they could have lived to have seen it."

Both troopers were killed in 1973.
