Rest Stop Dedicated In Memory Of Fallen Trooper

For the first time, an Illinois interstate rest stop has been renamed in honor of a fallen state police trooper. 


The rest stops on Interstate 55 at mile marker 64, south of Springfield, have been dedicated in honor of Trooper Kyle Deatherage.  He was killed in the line of duty in November of 2012 as he was conducting a traffic stop along that same stretch of interstate. 


Deatherage’s widow Sarah and other family members joined state lawmakers and state police officials for the dedication Thursday.
