Remembering Officer Kilcullen

KilcullenSPRINGFIELD, Ore. – It was three years Monday, since the local law enforcement community lost one of its own.

A small memorial was set up at the intersection of Highway 126 and 52nd Street, where Eugene Police Officer Chris Kilcullen was shot and killed while attempting a traffic stop.

His family says the loss doesn’t get easier, but they’re coping by trying to keep his memory alive, through a scholarship fund and the Kilcullen project, which raises money for the scholarship and other community events.

The woman accused of killing Kilcullen, Cheryl Kidd was committed to a mental hospital for two years, in November.
