Family of slain SAPD officer says Donald Trump called to offer condolences

Detective Benjamin Marconi

The family of slain San Antonio Police Department Detective Benjamin Marconi says President-Elect Donald Trump contacted them Monday to offer his condolences.

Annie Patterson Campos, who identifies herself as a "CSI (Crime Scene Investigator) at San Antonio Police Department" on her Facebook page, shared a post from Detective Benjamin Marconi's "son" Dane Gregory Marconi. Marconi's message states "Just got off the phone with the future president Trump, he sends his condolences to our family." The Facebook post was later removed.

Detective Marconi was shot to death Sunday while sitting in his patrol car writing a traffic ticket outside Public Safety Headquarters Downtown.
