I don’t think this will ever feel real. I’m heartbroken by the sudden loss of my friend, Kristy Astran. She was an amazing Austin police officer, single mom, friend to so many and just an all around sweet person with a great sense of humor. I’ll miss our Lubbock trips, her laugh, crazy work stories and time with our kids. Kristy raised two beautiful kids and lots of fur babies on top of having such a difficult job as a police officer. She’d work the night shift and still make time to do Des’s makeup for her school formals as she was amazing with it! Rest in peace Kristy and know that we’ll always be there for your family. 💔🕊️
While her career was not without controversy, it is important to remember the positive impact she had on her community and the lives she touched during her tenure. Despite the circumstances surrounding her passing, Officer Astran’s legacy continues to inspire her colleagues and the community she served.
My heart and prayers go out to the Austin police Department. In the past 24 hours, they have experienced tremendous loss. 🖤💙🖤Yesterday, SWAT Senior Officer Jorge Pastore #9097 was tragically killed in the line of duty after a hostage situation and a second officer, was also injured and is in stable condition. Today, Austin PD experienced the loss of another officer. Senior Officer Kristy Astran #4729 took her life last night. If you ever feel alone, know that you are loved and there is help for you. My inbox is always open. Two separate losses, 2 different circumstances. Our officers deserve better. As a LEOW, I can say that our officers sign up to make a difference, not to be shot and killed. Our officers sacrifice so much, for people who care so little. So if you see an officer, please be kind to them. They deserve to come home. This tragedy is a reminder that tomorrow isn’t promised, so be kind, let go of anger and make sure you love those around you. Pray for our officers, community, and our country. 🇺🇸 🖤💙🖤Keep both the Pastore and Astran families in prayer. 🙏 – Ruth
