PLANTATION, Fla. – Dozens of police officers and fire rescue from Davie and Plantation are expected to join in a funeral procession Saturday for a Davie police officer who retired on Dec. 1, then 10 days later died in a motorcycle crash.
Dexter “Batman” Riley had been a police officer for 27 years.
Riley, 50, of Plantation, was a die-hard Batman fanatic who more people knew as Batman then Dexter, according to colleagues.
Friends said Riley would volunteer by dressing up several times a year as Batman and, each Halloween, visit sick children in hospitals.
Riley’s funeral is Saturday at Broward College’s Bailey Hall.
