Funeral held for Savannah Police Officer found stabbed to death

Local News

Family and friends of Savannah Police Officer Luis Molina gathered at the Kingdom Life Christian Fellowship Church today in Savannah. 

Alcine Gross, a friend, and fellow Ruff Ryder was among those paying their respects. “He was more than a friend, he was more than every title we can give him. He was a brother,” she said. 

Corporal Molina and his wife Akia were stabbed to death Monday morning on Wilmington Island. Akia Molina’s 16-year-old brother now faces two counts of malice murder.

When Gross heard the news of his passing, “I cried every day. I had to leave work,” she said.

Savannah Police Officers and Chief of Police Mark Revenew were among those saying an emotional goodbye. 

“Moe made a difference. And it’s easy to focus on the tragedy and the senseless of this incident, but your heart should be more knowing that he dedicated his life to making a difference,” said Revenew. 

Corporal Molina was fifty-two-years-old. He is survived by his mother and two brothers.
