Evansville police detective Nathan Schroer's brave and inspirational battle with Leukemia has come to an end. Schroer was an 11-year veteran of the EPD and he was also a Pastor at Northwoods Church. Most recently, Schroer was assigned to Holly's House, where he investigated crimes of domestic and sexual violence. Schroer's battle with Leukemia was as inspirational as the work he did for the community for so long. Schroer was often described by those who knew him best as the very definition of a public servant.

EPD Chief Billy Bolin said of Schroer when he was diagnosed for the second time earlier this year, "Nathan is just a good genuine guy and always has a positive attitude about everything, including his own battle with Leukemia." Bolin also described Schroer as a "very dedicated public servant who was always more concerned about everybody else than he was about himself."

Schroer leaves behind his wife, Lindsay and three children, Elyon, Micaiah and Haddon. Services are pending and more information will be available on the Facebook pages of the Evansville Police Department and the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor's Office.
