Funeral Set For Slain Metro Atlanta Police Officer
ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A funeral has been scheduled for a former East Point police officer who authorities say was shot by her ex-roommate.
Officials say a funeral for 34-year-old Crystal Parker is scheduled for Saturday at East Point Mallalieu United Methodist Church. A public visitation has not been scheduled.
Authorities have said Parker was found in her house south of Atlanta on Sunday. Police later arrested Parker’s former 30-year-old roommate Danielle Parker and charged her with murder. Police say Crystal Parker was shot in her head and authorities have not disclosed a murder in the killing.
Crystal Parker was a six year department veteran and the department’s 2012 officer of the year.
Jail records indicate Danielle Parker is being held without bond and it’s unclear if she has an attorney.
