Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-8) issued the following statement today following the news that Washington State Patrol Trooper Tony Radulescu had been killed in the line of duty:

“I am deeply saddened to hear this morning of the senseless death of Washington State Patrol Trooper Tony Radulescu. As a 33 year former member of the law enforcement family, unfortunately I have firsthand knowledge of this tragedy’s impact. I am heartbroken that his immediate family and his brothers and sisters in the Washington State Patrol community are suffering this enormous loss.

“Trooper Radulescu’s sacrifice serves as a reminder of all the brave men and women who keep our streets secure while their loved ones worry for them.

Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers today and every day.”
