From the State Police: Collinsville – Illinois State Police Director Hiram Grau today released the following statement regarding the fatal crash that claimed t...he life of a D-18 (Litchfield) State Trooper this morning.

“It is with a heavy heart and deep sadness that I announce the tragic death of Trooper Kyle Deatherage. Trooper Deatherage left a legacy of courage and duty and today he is surrounded by the respect of his fellow officers and by the love of his friends and family. Our hearts are heavy with grief, but they are also strengthened by Trooper Deatherage’s brave calling,” Grau said.
