Two funds have been set up in memory of the Illinois State Police trooper who was killed in the line of duty during an I-55 traffic stop this week.
One fund is for the future educational expenses of Trooper Kyle Deatherage’s two young children. The other sets up a scholarship fund for students who plan to pursue a career in law enforcement. Both funds have been established through Scott Credit Union in Highland, Illinois.
Deatherage is being laid to rest this weekend after being struck by a semi while conducting that traffic stop south of Springfield last Monday.
