CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department officer passed away unexpectedly, chief Johnny Jennings said Monday.

Jennings says from now until Starnes’ funeral, CMPD will be wearing mourning bands in her honor.

“Anyone who knew her or worked with her knows her kindness and good nature will be missed dearly,” he added.

In 2018, CMPD posted on social media that Officer Starnes helped find a missing Gastonia woman who got lost on the beach during a vacation. Starnes was also on vacation.

“We’re all very thankful to her for helping us, such a wonderful person!” the missing woman’s family wrote to Starnes at the time.
