Detective Kevin Orr sustained fatal injuries when the helicopter he was riding in crashed into the Green River.

He was participating in a search for a missing woman whose burned-out car had been found several days earlier.

The helicopter struck a power line that was hanging across the river and then crashed into the water several feet from shore. Detective Orr was transported to LDS Hospital where he died a short time later. The civilian pilot suffered non-fatal injuries.

Detective Orr had served with the Uintah County Sheriff's Office for 11 years. He is survived by his wife and four children.

Dad,
I came to write you earlier, but I knew if I wanted to be nice I better wait. But it's okay, because for your birthday mom, the girls, Donovan and I wrote you letters, tied them to our balloon and sent them to you. So Happy Birthday.
Daddy, we've struggled in many ways the last 10 1/3 years, but especially medically. Right now, Ashlee is the one that needs Heavenely help, inspiration and guidance. She received bad news yesterday, and not sure what she'll receive today. I feel so bad for her because a 12 year old girl shouldn't feel the way she does. Nobody should.. I also feel bad for mom. She's had to deal and stress over our medical problems time and time again. Receiving no news after no news after bad news. And you aren't here to help her with the stress of that. I wish you could be here for mom...
Dad, we're moving! You know all of the details, so I won't write them. Everyone that cares, knows. Mom does, Tyler does, the girls do, Grandpa Glen does, Donovan's family and different people that we've told. I know you know the reasons of why. And every time I think of it, I am so grateful for Donovan. He's the one that suggested it. He's the one that gave reasons why. For that, I'll be eternally grateful. As I'm sure you are too.
I love you dad. You truly are the best there's ever been.
Miss you muchly
