INDIANAPOLIS - It's been an emotional week with the funerals of two Marion County police officers. But other departments are dealing with even more loss.

Westfield's Izzy Clouse lost both parents, her father, Scott Clouse, a WPD officer, died of cancer in 2015, and her mother Amy Clouse, a Boone County dispatcher, died last week.

The Times' newsgathering partner WTHR reported Sunday, police officers planned a big surprise at the State Fair to bring a smile to that teenager's face.

On a busy day at the Blue Ribbon Pavilion, goats and sheep are on display. Plenty of people came to watch, including dozens of deputies and police from Boone County.

"I grew up on a farm in Iowa, so I've shown a lot of animals in the past," said Boone County Sheriff Mike Nielsen.

They filled two bleachers - and left some to stand - and they all came to see Izzy Clouse.

Izzy brought her goat named Wishbone, who placed second place in the Hamilton County fair competition this summer. They wanted to see how he compares to other goats at the State Fair.

But Izzy had no idea the officers were planning to show up.

"Her parents were the epitome of good examples - great role models," said Westfield Police Sgt. Billy Adams. "They really raised a good girl."

Izzy had no doubt what she was going to do on Sunday morning.

"I said, 'yeah, I think that's what mom and dad would want.' So I just kept showing," said Izzy.

The officers wanted to make sure she didn't have to do it alone.

"You can see Scott and Amy both in Izzy's face and it brought back heartfelt feelings for both of them," said Nielsen.

They put together a last-minute plan to make sure she'd know they have her back.

"Really happy," said Izzy. "And it was surprising because I didn't know they were coming. A lot of people were supporting me."

"The fact that she's here doing it this soon after going through a tragedy like that, I think that shows her passion for it," said Adams.

There were 11 other goats in Izzy's class. She and Wishbone placed third.
