Police Officer Raymond Murrell was killed in a vehicle crash while responding to a larceny in progress.

His patrol car left the roadway and struck a utility pole at the intersection of Army Trail Road and Cardinal Drive. Emergency crews extricated him from his vehicle and transported him to Adventist GlenOaks Hospital where he passed away a short time later.

It is believed that bad weather contributed to the crash.

Officer Murrell had served with the Bloomingdale Police Department for less than one year and had previously served with the Cook County Department of Corrections.

A student in our 3rd grade class, Leah Bilek, found a hand painted rock with the words, "In memory of Officer Raymond Murrell" while doing a 5K run in memory of one of our fallen local police officers, Officer D.W. Smith. After she picked it up during the race, her father, also a police officer, carried the rock the rest of the race. She brought it into school today to share it with us. We looked up Officer Murrell online and found this site. We wanted you to know about Leah's discovery of the rock and to let you know that we honor and appreciate Officer Murrell's service. The class feels that Leah's discovery of the rock was meant to be. We are sorry for your loss. From, Mrs. Swartz's 3rd Grade Class in Johnson City Intermediate School, Johnson City, NY
