This is what took up much of my Thursday afternoon. Michaela Blanton, wife of slain trooper Shawn Blanton, spoke to media yesterday. It was the first time she had talked to the media (she’s been sending statements through the hospital) and she called the conference, which was surprising.
So, go here for the video. Warning, it’s long. If you really want to get to her story, move onto the end of video where she talks about how she found out Shawn had been hurt.
