Public viewing of the caskets for fallen Santa Cruz police Sgt. Loran "Butch" Baker and Officer Elizabeth Butler is scheduled Wednesday, according to the City of Santa Cruz.
The viewing walkthrough is planned from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. March 6 at Santa Cruz Memorial, 1927 Ocean St.
"With this viewing we have added to the opportunities for the local community to join with us and honor Sergeant Butch Baker and Officer Elizabeth Butler," the city announced on its website. "This additional public viewing opportunity has been made possible through the generous contribution of the Krassow family and Santa Cruz Memorial."
Baker and Butler were investigating a misdemeanor sexual assault when they approached the door of Jeremy Goulet's residence Tuesday afternoon in Santa Cruz, authorities said. Goulet was killed by other officers in a subsequent shootout.
A memorial service for Baker and Butler is planned at noon March 7 at HP Pavilion in San Jose.
Thousands are expected, said Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel. The memorial will be broadcast at Kaiser Arena, home of the Santa Cruz Warriors, in Santa Cruz for those who can't attend the San Jose service.
