“She Loved Strong”

The life of Tera Cordova Chavez

Tera Cordova Chavez was 26 when she died. Her husband, police officer Levi Chavez, reported that he found her body on Oct. 21, 2007, after she'd shot herself with his department-issued weapon. But questions arose. Police Chief Ray Schultz announced Levi’s termination this week.

News reports haven’t focused much on Tera as a person. This is her story.
