Two Virginia Police Dead After Helicopter Crash

“Our state police and law enforcement family at large are mourning this tragic outcome to an already challenging day,” Col. W. Steven Flaherty, VSP superintendent, said in a statement posted to the department’s Facebook page. “Lieutenant Cullen was a highly respected professional aviator and trooper-pilot Bates was a welcome addition to the Aviation Unit, after a distinguished assignment as a special agent with our Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Their deaths are a tremendous loss to our agency and the commonwealth.”
