Trooper Cochran was shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance in his neighborhood in Fairfax County. Trooper Cochran was off duty when he heard a gunshot and a woman's scream near his home on Hagel Circle in the Lorton area. He ran into his home to get his service weapon and as he came back outside to investigate he was shot in the back and head with by a man with a shotgun.

An Army officer who lived in the neighborhood was also shot and killed when he came out of his home. The suspect was arrested at the scene and charged with murder. He was later convicted during his trial.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 25th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Your memory will always be honored and revered as time never diminishes respect. I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace
