Numerous individuals attend Sgt. Heather Glenn’s visitation



Tell City, Indiana – At Tell City Junior-Senior High School on Sunday afternoon, the Tell City neighborhood bid Sgt. Heather Glenn farewell.

“This is something you always think could happen, but, until it happens, you don’t understand what it’s doing to our community,” said Perry County Sheriff Alan Malone.

Numerous people gathered at the school in support of the Glenn family and to pay tribute to what Glenn meant to them.

This also applies to Vanessa Cliseomata, whose family frequently served Glenn at the Los Amigos eatery in Tell City.

“She was always such a sweet person. She was always so happy, and she just made everyone around her smile,” Cliseomata said. “It was just really important for her to know — even though she’s not here with us — to know that we absolutely loved her and lot to us.”

Law officers gave the Glenn family an American flag in honor of her more than 20 years of service to Tell City as Tell City people gave embraces and sobbed together.

Glenn was regarded as one of the top law enforcement professionals by those who interviewed with Eyewitness News. She was renowned for lending a hand to neighbors in need of money.

“We mourn the loss of Heather, but we try to celebrate her life and her career — her dedication to her career,” said Tell City Lt. Roger Smith.

Those who knew Glenn well recall her kindness and humility toward others as one of their memories of her.

“I can guarantee you right now, Heather would be frowning at us for all of this,” Sheriff Malone said. “They would — she would not want all this attention. She would not like all these people coming to see her. She would not approve of this whatsoever.”

Residents claimed it was crucial for them to discuss how Glenn had positively affected them in order to ultimately recover stronger, despite how Glenn would have felt about the spotlight.

“I want our community to stick together and strong,” Cliseomata said. “I think right now is a very, very important time, and we should stick together as a community.”
