Teen charged in Somerville officer's death arrested in Vermont

Remigio died Monday night from injuries suffered during a motorcycle crash in New Hampshire.

Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone called Remigio a well-respected and well-loved officer.

Remigio had been with the Somerville police since 1988 and was working in the traffic unit. "It was always the tall officer with the glasses and the big smile riding the motorcycle". He had received several honors over his time with the department including two Life Saving awards and a Meritorious Service award.

The post credited Remigio with stepping up during a major incident in Davis Square in 2014 to help direct traffic during an evacuation, and for coming to work when the city was short-handed during July 4 celebrations.

The body of a MA police officer who died a day after a being involved in a traffic crash in New Hampshire has been returned to the city where he worked.

"Louis does it all, and seeks no recognition", the department wrote in a Facebook post. "He was fearless, courageous, gentle, empathetic, kind".

"He was everything that epitomizes a good police officer", Fallon said. "This is the kind of guy you want in your police department".

Remigio was taken to a hospital in New Hampshire and died the next day. His vehicle struck Ricci's vehicle from behind following the initial collision between Ricci's and Remigio's vehicles, according to state police.

Tarentino was killed in the line of duty as he made a motor vehicle stop for the Auburn Police Department on May 22, 2016.

Returning to headquarters after seeing the body of his officer returned home, Chief Fallon told the Herald, "It was bittersweet in a way".
