Illinois State Trooper Kyle Deatherage (pictured) was remembered in the Illinois House Thursday. Deatherage was a motorcycle trooper with District 18 in Litchfield, and served with the Madison County Sheriff's Department before joining the Illinois State Police in 2009. Representative Jim Sacia says Deatherage was a brave trooper who served with honor.
A semi hit Deatherage while he was conducting a traffic stop on I-55 near Litchfield last November. The House held a moment of silence for Deatherage. His wife and other family members were there to witness the moment.
