Widow of slain police officer learned she was pregnant days after his death


The wife of a fallen police officer found out that she was pregnant just days after laying him to rest.

Milwaukee police officer Matthew Ritter was killed in the line of duty back in February.

To commemorate Matthew, Caroline Rittner held a gender reveal party with his unit.

The gender reveal was bittersweet according to Milwaukee Police Department Lieutenant Kristin Felsman. She told WISN, “It was met with mixed emotions. Extremely joyful emotions because, (it’s) another legacy of Matt, and obviously very sad emotions because Matt would not be there to share in the joy of a new life.”

The MPD has pledge to be there for the Rittner’s.

“She knows that she can come anytime and knock on our door. She doesn’t even have to. We’re gonna be there bothering her all the time anyway,” Sgt. Roberto Colon said.
