DETROIT – Her husband died while working. Now the widow of Detroit Police Agent Loren Courts talks about his life and legacy.

Despite the shock and grief, Officer Courts’ family wants you to know that he was an exceptional man, father and police officer.

Everything that has happened since the night of Wednesday (July 6) is surreal for the family and most importantly, breathtakingly unfair.

It’s all overwhelming and just so very, very difficult.

“I’m angry, but I’m more sad,” said Kristine Courts. “I’m sad that I can’t see him anymore, that we can’t hug him anymore. I am sad. I don’t know if I have time to be angry now.”

Kristine and Loren Courts have two beautiful children, nine-year-old Devin Courts, who wears his Batman t-shirt, and 15-year-old Darien Courts, who wore a Michigan State University sweatshirt where his father went to school.

They want you to know about their father.

“What was your favorite thing to do with your father?” Mara MacDonald asked.

“Hang with him,” Devin Courts said. “Watch a movie or play together.”

“He would put everything aside if we needed anything,” said Darien Courts. “He was just always there for whatever we needed.”

Loren Courts loved being a Detroit police officer, but Devin and Darien Courts were his number one.

“I keep asking why,” Kristine Courts said. “I prayed so hard, and when we got to the hospital it was unreal. Almost out of the body because when they came in, you knew immediately when the doctor came in that this wouldn’t be right.”

Her extended family and friends surrounded Kristine Courts. When Local 4 came to visit, the house was filled to the roof.

But in so many ways, she and her children find themselves at the center of a whirlwind. With a huge sense of emptiness. How do you fill what is now a gigantic painful void?

“There’s a lot that I can’t do for them that he can do, and for that he should have been here, and now there are some things that I can’t do, but I’m going to do my best I can.”
