Utah is mourning with the unified police today, due to the loss of a veteran detective yesterday. He passed away due to medical conditions. Holdaway had more than 19 years’ law enforcement experience. He was working in the special victims unit dealing with sex crimes at the time of his death. “I am heartbroken and devastated to inform you that early this morning, UPD detective Brian Holdaway suffered a medical condition and has fallen in the line of duty surrounded by friends and colleagues at the sheriff’s office building, who heroically tried to reverse this tragedy. Unfortunately, the efforts were unsuccessful and Brian passed away in the company of family and friends at Intermountain Medical Center. Our hearts go out to the Holdaway family and to all of you who knew and worked with Brian.” was written by Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder posted on the department’s Facebook page.
A viewing on behalf of Green is set for 6-8 p.m. Friday at the Heber City LDS Church meetinghouse at 325 E. 500 South.
