A funeral procession for slain officer Blake Snyder will work its way through portions of Alton and Godfrey on Thursday.  Snyder, who was killed in the line of duty last Thursday, will be laid to rest at Valhalla Memorial Park in Godfrey.  Snyder is a Riverbend native and a 2001 graduate of Alton High School.

Alton Police Chief Jason Simmons tells The Big Z you are invited to line the highway from Clifton Terrace Road to the cemetery on Thursday afternoon as the funeral procession passes by.
