The sound of "Amazing Grace" played by a lone bagpiper resonated as a line of  Connecticut law enforcement officers honored the family of slain police officer, Robert Holcomb, as they left a victorious parole hearing for the person responsible for his murder.

In 1977  Gerald "Gary" Castonguay was convicted of shooting Officer Holcomb to death, and in January 2015, without notice to Holcomb's family, the Connecticut Pardon and Parole Board granted him parole beginning in July.

Not only was the family outraged at this decision, but also fellow officers and the general public who campaigned through letters, emails, and calls to oppose Castonguay's release.

Granted a new hearing, the family was able to express their injustice and the parole was rescinded.
