The Ellis County Sheriff's Office, Dallas Police Department and Patriot Riders provided an escort Thursday afternoon to a clay statue of fallen hero Chris Kyle as it made its way through Ellis County en route to a foundry in North Texas. A Florida artist made the statue, which will be cast in bronze, as a tribute. Kyle, who authored the book, "American Sniper," and a friend, Chad Littlefield, lost their lives Feb. 2, 2013, while assisting a fellow veteran. That man remains in custody awaiting trial on capital murder charges.
