Montgomery Police Det. Tanisha Pughsley, who was found dead on Monday, was laid to rest this Thursday. She was 27 years old.

The police department led a 10 mile caravan from the state forensics facility to Ross-Clayton Funeral Home.

More than 75 law enforcement vehicles and fire rescue units flashed their lights along the way. Motorists pulled over and slowed down on I-85 to pay their respects.

Her death was unrelated to her police work. Her ex-boyfriend, Brandon Deshawn Webster, has been charged in her death.
