Police, governor also honor slain MIT officer

 STONEHAM — The officers wore different patches, arriving from across the region, but as they prepared to enter St. Patrick’s Church, they stood together under a light drizzle Tuesday morning.

Sean Collier, who was allegedly slain by the Boston Marathon terror bombing suspects last week, bought a new truck two months ago, a shiny black Ford F-150. It was parked in front of the church, close to the formation of police. The truck bed was filled with large flower arrangements, and bunting hung from the front bumper. A small sticker of the MIT Police insignia was affixed to the front left side of the truck, just ­before the driver’s door.
