17. Officer Cottrell Memorial, Danville

Officer Thomas Cottrell was killed in the line of duty on January 17, 2016. There will be a memorial for him at 7 p.m. tonight at the Danville, Ohio, Municipal Building.

Today’s trip is a somber one. We head east to the small-town of Danville, Ohio, for the memorial service for Officer Thomas Cottrell at 7 p.m. at the Municipal Building.

This community of 1,000 was rocked on January 17, 2016 when Officer Thomas Cottrell was murdered in his car just outside the municipal building.

The officer and community leader has been remembered for his commitment to this eastern Knox County village. Unfortunately, I did not know him as I had moved to Delaware before he moved to Danville but my friends had nothing to but amazing things to say about this hero.
