Trooper Norman Killough was accidentally shot and killed by an officer from another agency during an undercover operation.

Trooper Killough and a second trooper were undercover attempting to build credibility for an illegal fencing operation. The joint operation included officers from the Flint Police Department stopping them to hassle them in a high-crime section of town. During the second such stop one of the officer's revolvers accidentally discharged, striking Trooper Killough in the side. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Norman,

It is 6:00 am in the morning I have not been to sleep because I have been going down memory lane thinking about you. Every once in a while you come in my mind and good memories surface. About now if you were here, you would be retired by now. Your head of hair would be mingling with gray everywhere, but I don't think you would have a pot belly because your were athletic. I know you would still be handsome as ever with a personality to match. Norman, Happy Memorial Day, I wish you where here so I can fill you up again with some barbecue chicken and all the fixings that goes with it, boy. You enjoyed it in 1978 then and you would enjoy it now. I remember you had some food from your mom, and you wanted some food from me. It was a pleasure and a honor serving you that way because you where serving the community in your way. Thank you for being around then because I felt so safe and sound with you there. I truly miss your warmth and gentleness to me. Thank you. PEACE.
