Daryle Holloway - Law Enforcement Fatality - New Orleans, Louisiana

Police Officer Daryle Holloway, age 46, died in the line of duty on June 20, 2015, at a hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Officer Holloway was a member of the New Orleans Police Department. He had 22 years of service. He was assigned to the 5th District.

At approximately 8:00 a.m., Daryle was transporting a prisoner, Travis Boys, age 33, to the Central Lockup in the city. 

Travis Boys had been arrested for aggravated assault earlier during the previous shift. He had been handcuffed behind his back but managed to maneuver his arms to the front of his body. He then crawled through the vehicle's partition and began struggling with Officer Holloway as the officer was driving. Officer Holloway was shot during the ensuing struggle, causing his vehicle to crash into a utility pole near a city intersection. 

Travis Boys was able to flee on foot after the vehicle crashed and remains at large as of this posting. 

Travis is quite the Houdini.  He can switch his handcuffed arms from the back to the front, crawl through a small partition hole in a police vehicle, grab a gun, shoot an officer and run off presumably while handcuffed.  This dude should have directed his numerous abilities to the circus instead of to the streets of New Orleans. 

We wonder if he will be able to Houdini himself out of the death penalty in Louisiana for killing a police officer? 

Officer Holloway was rushed to a local hospital where tragically he succumbed to his injuries. 

Citizens with information that can help solve this crime are asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP. A reward is offered. 
Michael, Archangel, patron saint of the
Police, pray for Daryle and for those
who have lost him. 

The New Orleans Police Department is in mourning over the death of their brother. He will be forever remembered.

Daryle's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He did his best. He will be forever mourned.

Daryle is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his three children. 

Thank you for your service to the community, Daryle.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Pray for all who die suddenly. They are with us one moment and are gone before we can say goodbye.

God save us from the Lost Ones who bring death to strangers. Amen.

Pray that Daryle is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
