A friend of the slain Eugene Police Officer calls him a one of a kind person who was very popular in the community. The Eugene radio talk show host is going to speak at Friday's memorial that is expected to draw as many as 15,000 people. Rob Holloway knew Officer Chris Kilcullen for several years as a friend and professionally on the radio. 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 and the fact that this woman obviously needed some help; I mean its entirely possible that he could've been helping her 3 days before and she ends up taking his life. It's a question I'll ask, probably for the rest of my life.” 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 on aggravated murder. Officer Kilcullen was a highly decorated and popular officer, and leaves behind a wife and two children.
