Killed Eugene Officer Remembered


A friend of the slain Eugene police officer calls him a one of a kind person who was very popular in the community. Radio talk show host Rob Holloway is going to speak at Friday's memorial in Eugene that could draw as many as 15,000. He knew Officer Chris Kilcullen for several years as a friend and a professionally on the radio. The 43 year old officer was shot and killed during a traffic pursuit on Friday. The suspect, Cheryl Kidd of Springfield was arrested a short time later and arrested on aggravated murder. Holloway says officer Kilcullen was heavily involved in several different important local causes. “The ironic thing about it is he was extremely involved in helping people with mental health issues.” Officer Kilcullen was a highly decorated and popular officer, and leaves behind a wife and two children. Governor John Kitzhaber today is ordered that all flags at public facilities in Lane County be flown at half-staff and on Friday. The day of the memorial, flags throughout Oregon will be flown at half-mast.
