Officers Harry Capps and William Cassidy were killed in an airplane crash while conducting an operation in eastern Arkansas.

Officer Capps was the pilot of the single-engine Champion. An investigation found that the aircraft pulled into a steep climb, went into a spin, and nose-dived into the ground at the edge of a rice field.

Officer Capps was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission for 5 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.
