TOWN CREEK, Ala. (WHNT) - The Town Creek police department is mourning the loss of one of their officers.

Officer Roger O'Dell died Wednesday morning while on a call.  He had just picked up two runaways at an apartment complex, and was on his way back into the apartment when he collapsed.

One of the runaways was able to get from the back of the cruiser to the police radio to call dispatch for help.  Unfortunately, it was too late.  O'Dell died instantly from a heart attack.

He leaves behind a wife and four children.
