Tearful Police Chief Confirms Houston Officer’s Death In Harvey Flooding [Video]

Sgt. Steve Perez, who was with Houston Police Department for 34 years, drowned while trying to report to his station.

According to KTRK out of Houston, Sunday, Sgt. Perez drove for two and a half hours in order to try to find a route to his station. Following protocol, he then headed toward a second station in Kingwood.

When he didn’t show up to the second station by the Monday morning, it was apparent that something was wrong.

Sgt. Perez’s body was found around 8am Tuesday morning. He was just shy of his 61st birthday. He leaves behind a wife, son, and daughter.

Rest in peace, Sgt. Steve Perez. We mourn all of those that have died as a result of Harvey, and are thankful to all first responders, EMS, fire, police, and volunteers who are working tirelessly.
