Toddler made honorary Tomball cop dies after cancer battle

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Very sad news to pass along about a young boy who became an honorary Tomball police department officer

Tomball police announced this morning that 21-month-old Creighton Heslop passed away.

Creighton was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. Tomball police found out about his fascination with police and made him an honorary officer last month.

During a ceremony in October, officials gave him a custom-made Tomball Police Department uniform, and the City Mayor Gretchen Fagan declared October 19 as the "Creighton Celebration of Life Day."

Tomball police posted about Creighton's passing to Facebook this morning.
