Name : Williamson, Stacie 

Rank: P.O.

Shield #: Command: Manhattan Narcotics
Date of Death: 2001-06-17   Cause of Death: Shot by Officer
 An off-duty narcotics detective fatally shot his cop girlfriend in her Bronx apartment before killing himself.

Detective Edwin Patten, 30, and Officer Stacie Williamson, 28, worked undercover in the Bronx and had dated about a year.

But Williamson, a four-year NYPD veteran, recently told Patten she didn't want to see him anymore, and she transferred to a new narcotics assignment in Manhattan, an investigator said.

Patten, a seven-year veteran who lived in Yonkers, showed up about 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Williamson's mother's house on De Reimer Ave. in Baychester, where Williamson lived in a basement apartment.

She was out with friends, and Patten told her mother he would come back later, police said. When Williamson arrived about 10:30 p.m., Patten was waiting for her outside and they went downstairs to her apartment, police said.

About 11:15 p.m., Williamson's sister heard what sounded like a gunshot. She called down through the locked door to her sister, and Patten shouted back that "everything was okay" and turned up the volume on the radio, police said.

The sister called 911. When cops broke down the door, they found Williamson lying on the floor next to her bed with three gunshot wounds to her chest and abdomen and a gunshot wound to her thigh. Patten was sitting on the bed with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Stacie Williamson was appointed to the NYPD on April 15, 1997 and assigned to Company #97-25. Upon graduating at the end of October 1997, she was assigned to the 46 Precinct in the Bronx. After a short stint there the ambitious young Officer went into the Bronx Narcotics Division as an undercover. There she met Detective Edwin Patten and they dated for about a year. Williamson told Patten she no longer wanted to see him anymore and she left Bronx Narcotics for Manhattan Narcotics.

I saw Stacie at the funeral for Detective Sean Carrington in January of 1998. She knew Carrington from her interests in getting into the Bronx Narcotics unit. Since it was the first Line of Duty death we had to face since our graduation, I'll never forget the conversation we had. She said to me, "How many more of these do you think we'll go to in our career?" I just looked at her and answered, "Who knows?" Never would I imagine it would one day be hers. It took a while Stacie, but I got you up there. MAY THE ROAD RISE TO MEET YOU, MAY THE WIND BE ALWAYS AT YOUR BACK MAY THE SUN SHINE UPON YOUR FACE AND, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, MAY GOD HOLD YOU IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND

I remember attending Stacie's wake (because I too had been there and knew she was a child and officer friend of my son. I also remembered as a mother of a slain officer, Det. Sean Carrington, the loss I felt for her mother and family. I remembered all the shattered dreams, all my fears, but most of all the lonliness that comes with death of a loved one. I hope that her family has found some solace and/or peace that seemed never to come.

the death of this police officer is a true tradgedy and a loss to all new yorkers as citizens we should all hail these dedicared people who protect us from harm everyday while putting thier lives on the life so we can all have peace and feel safe the city should have a police officers day in all the communities where the people can go in and thank the police officers personally for what they do for us and use it as a time to decorate these officers and advance them in pay and rank they are true heros

What can I say about a person such as Stacie. Other than she was a committed and dedicated officer. Always looking toward the next level of accomplishment. I know that she watches over her family, because that she was her gift to make sure that everyone that she came in contact knew how she felt about them, good or bad. She was a beloved daughter, a loving sister and a wonderful aunt. She was my best friend. My loss was great but her families loss was greater I am just blessed to have know her at all.

Wow, Its been that long! Stacie, I came home from Kosovo drove to my parents house and heard Hot 97 say your name. I said I haven't heard from Stacie in a minute, let me suprise her and let her know that I did what I said and go into the Marine Corps. I drove to your mother's house, your sister met me at the door and informed me of the bad news. My heart dropped! I confronted your mother and she told me that she wish she would have allowed us to get married. However, we was to young and we were in our first stages of adulthood. Your older brother agreed and said it was best that we didn't. Well, I did everything we talked about execept spend the rest of my life with you. I fought in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kosovo. Moreover, I became a Drill Instructor. Now, I am a Police Officer in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Time go by fast, but I never forgot or stop loving you. By the way, I mastered that curry chicken. Forever, I will hold you in my heart! Rest in peace!

Yesterday I watched Pride and Glory, with Mr C.F. and other and it touched me so much and realized, how difficult work you have in NYC (I live in the Czech Republic - Europe). When I read this particular story, I feel so sorry, but I know Stacie was great! Respect to your work!

I attended John Jay College with Stacie and I did not get to see her again until we reunited again in Bronx Narcotics. She was a wonderful woman who always went out of her way to help everyone .A great undercover that risked her life everyday to rid drugs from the city of New York, she covered the 42 pct which was truly a rough command...you are in my prayers and missed everyday...God Bless You.

I can remember how nice and funny you were when I met you as a fellow Cadets, your memory will live on forever, and by the way you have a beautiful three-year old niece named Mia Stacie, named after you. You will forever be in our memories and your legacy for love of life will be forever and certainly live on thru Mia.
