'This is what we do,' retired deputy says as he awaits motorcade

MONROE -- A crowd gathered Tuesday morning outside the Monroe Correction Complex, waiting to greet the motorcade carrying the body of slain officer Jayme Beindl.

Among those waiting was Craig Wolf, 65, a retired King County deputy sheriff. He stood beside his pickup truck in the prison parking lot.

"This is what we do for our brothers and our sisters," he said.

Across W. Main Street, Monroe famer Derek Hudon, watched and waited for the motorcade with his nearly 2-year-old niece, Piper, on his shoulders. Next to him was his mother, Mary Hudon.

"It's strange," she said. "I didn't even know her, but I brought flowers and a candle" to the roadside memorial.

"It hits too close to home," she added.

Derek Hudon said he was there to honor Biendl.

"I need to pay my respects," he said.
