 Milagros Johnson's naked body was found in a marsh near Kennedy Airport shortly after the murder. The defendants said in videotaped statements that they fatally shot Johnson while she was off duty after they had consensual sex with her. Two suspects were arrested and charged with murder. Kwame Jackson, 24, said that he and Anthony Joseph, 20, had sex with Milagros Johnson in Joseph's St. Albans apartment on Nov. 11. Jackson said that he later shot Johnson three times in the head after he became afraid that the officer, who was brandishing her service revolver, was going to shoot him. Her last words: I'm a cop...

Kwame Jackson, who bragged about having sex with the off-duty officer was found guilty in Johnson's death.

Officer Johnson, 25 had been with the NYPD for just two years.

I never new Milagros, But I have followed the story of her death. She was killed because she was a cop by people who hated Police Officers. God Bless her and keep her. She did not deserve to die in the way those two animals murdered her.

May god always bless you Milagros.

Millie. You have no idea how often I think of you. How much it hurts to have known your goodness and sweetness, and to live all these years with the thought that you are no longer here. All the lies in the world will never tarnish your spirit, your image, your career or your faith in humanity. I love you and I miss you, and I will (as always) celebrate our birthday with pride for my fallen hero. God Bless you Sister.

I was in the Police academy with Milagros and we ate lunch together with other recruits. We all talked about our career goals. I vividly remember Milagros wanting to join the NYPD Scuba Team. Being in Emergency Service now, I think of her everytime I put on my scuba gear and enter the water.

I think about you always. I miss your kindness and your brave soul. Happy 39th Birthday.

I remember the day we had found out that you taken from us. I was sitting at the house (109th), when Sgt Ordonez came downstairs and told us your body was found and that you were gone. To this day, I think about that moment often and I visit the NLEOM all the time especially on Police Week. I touch your name and cry in your memory. May God hold you in his heart forever, Millie. God its been 12 years.

I was with a young cop in the 113 doing midnights the night we recovered her weapon with ESU in a sewer in South Jamaica, I remember the night vividly it was pouring rain, and I was thinking how sad this time must be for her family. I remember a doctor of mine talking about how he knew Milagros from the YMCA in Queens Village and how much she loved to swim. I hope the animals that took her from her family rot in hell for eternity.

My beloved sister. Today on your birthday I find that time does not heal all wounds. The hole in my heart I have had since you were taken from me has grown larger over the years. Our parents always told us when we argued to be kind to each other because when we grew older and our parents passed we would have each other. I did not have my wedding at our parish church, Immaculate Conception, because I feared that I would faint as I did there on the day of your funeral that was held in that very same church. I took in your two 90 pound mutts, bear and coco, because taking care of them was all that I could do for you. When they passed of old age at 15 and 16 years, my heart broke all over again. I know have three cocker spaniels and my friends call me the dog lady. Thank you for giving me your love of animals. It has been a great comfort to me over the years and turned into an avid hobby. When I turned 40 our mother gave me a beautiful ring with your birthstone. It helps me to remember you as you were a shining gem of our lives, as well as your love of life, all the possibilities for your bright future and your innocent view of the world. You saw the best qualities in people and only what the world had to offer you. Your memory is untarnished by the misrepresentations of the guilty. I will remember you my sister always. I am happy that you made your childhood dream of becoming an NYPD officer come true. I know you are with God and feel no pain nor suffer injuries. Please watch over those of us who love you and look forward to our reunion. It is true that only the good die young.

A society that makes war against its police should learn to live with its criminals. It truly is a war out there. We will never forget the ultimate sacrifice that our brothers and sisters in blue have made to keep the evil from taking us. God bless you Millie, God Bless your family, God Bless America.

Millie was a friend, classmate and motivator to all around her. Her spice for life and confidence made those with her feel no fear. She possessed a quality that is rare in this day in age and even though she has passed, she is still here. when you watch basketball, talk with your friends, inspire your children to succeed and play with your family dog. She loved mine growing up. Forever her smile will shine on those who knew her and even those that did not. God bless you Millie, you will forever be in my heart!

Twenty years...my god ,it seems like only yesterday that we received the horrible news of your tragic and untimely murder. I often think of you and your wonderful spirit and love for the job. I know you're in a better place now but it still saddens me to think of what would have been. It was my privilege to have known you and worked with you. My thoughts and prayers are now for your family, may they find peace and comfort.

PO Johnson, you died at a time where we went to many funerals of the people who cared, made this city a safer place, and left a void in all the people who knew , them , knew of them or worked the same job as them. You were no exception. God had other plans for you, he wanted you home with him. Even though you have passed you will never be forgotten, we pray for you and all the others who went back home in heaven. Rest in Peace Milagros. You were a great person and a cop to the end.
