ORLANDO, Fla. – Lt. Debra Clayton’s husband received a phone call from President-elect Donald Trump after she was killed, according to Florida State Attorney General Pam Bondi.
Bondi said Wednesday that Trump had a phone conversation with Clayton’s husband, Seth. Clayton was fatally shot outside a Walmart store in Orlando last week.
Bondi described the conversation as “a brief, very touching, private conversation between two husbands.”
A suspect wanted for Clayton’s slaying was taken into custody Tuesday night after a manhunt that lasted more than a week.
Clayton was shot after she approached Markeith Loyd, who was wanted at the time for the killing of his pregnant ex-girlfriend.
Loyd’s first court appearance is scheduled for Thursday.
