Suspect Steals Georgia Trooper's Vehicle After Fatal Shooting
December 28, 2010
Georgia authorities are searching for the suspect who fatally shot a Georgia State Patrol trooper, and then stole the officer's cruiser, reports CNN.com.
The traffic stop occurred in northwest Atlanta, and the cruiser was found abandoned about a half mile away.
Trooper Chadwick LeCroy, 38, was shot twice in the face and died while being transported to the local trauma unit. LeCroy is survived by his wife and two sons, ages 8 and 21. He became a trooper in August 2008.

As a retired State Trooper from a state clear across the country from Georgia this kind of inexcusable crime touches my heart. My deepest sympathy goes to Trooper LeCroy's widow, children, and other family, friends and fellow officers.
I do hope Georgia has the death penalty and that the prosecutor will not engage in any plea deals for a reduced sentence. This appears to be a cold, intentional, senseless murder and I have to wonder why the subject was still alive to be taken into custody? But then no one has to explain to me that perpetrators have more rights than victims or their families.
