JIM WILLIAMS: Rebeca Marmolejo graduated from Mother McCauley High School today. Since her dad was not there to mark this milestone with her, dozens of other Chicago police officers gathered outside the school to show their support. After the graduation, Rebecca took photos with about a dozen officers and school staffers as she proudly displayed her diploma.

Officer Eduardo Marmolejo and his partner were struck by a South Shore train while responding to a call of shots fired back in 2018. Both officers died.
