Her son was killed while he was training to be a Colorado state trooper.
And when she texted his cellphone number, someone texted BACK.
Yahoo.com says it was a police officer who, in a strange coincidence, was now the person who had her son's old number.
He offered to change it, but Carole Adler said no, that she liked the idea that someone else in law enforcement now had the number.
Troopers say her son, Taylor Thyfault, was run over by a fleeing suspect.
He was promoted posthumously to trooper.
