VIDEO: Boston Police Widow's Fight
The widow of a Boston Police officer has been fighting the state for accidental death benefits for 13 years since her husband's death from Hepatitis C.
Maura Shaw, who told her story to MyFoxBoston, believes her husband Kenneth Shaw contracted the virus while processing grisly crime scenes as a member of the Boston PD's identification unit.
Massachusetts has denied her application over and over again because she can't show exactly how he contracted hepatitis C decades ago.
"It's like a slap in the face. He loved his job. He loved doing what he did," Maura Shaw told FOX Undercover.
