Chadwick Thomas LeCroy

Corporal Chadwick LeCroy was shot and killed in Atlanta after a short vehicle pursuit.

He had attempted to stop a vehicle with a broken headlight on Bolton Road near James Jackson Parkway. The driver of the vehicle fled until it crashed at the intersection of St. Paul Avenue and Hightower Road.

As Corporal LeCroy approached the vehicle, the suspect opened fire three times, striking him once in the neck. The subject then stole Corporal LeCroy's patrol car and fled the scene. He was arrested a short distance away by members of the Atlanta Police Department and Cobb County Police Department.

On April 29, 2014, the suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life without parole.

Corporal LeCroy had served with the Georgia State Patrol for two years. He was posthumously promoted to the rank of Corporal. He is survived by his wife, two sons, parents, and siblings.

744,

It's been a few years since I last wrote. I am no longer with GSP and now with Coweta County Sheriff's Office. I do however miss my Blue shirts and still keep up with some of them. Alot has changed around GSP, always people coming and people going. My cousin is a trooper now and the pride he has to wear that blue shirt you would be thrilled to see. He is like the old school troopers of course there are few of those these days, but as I'm sure your watching over them.
I am planning on getting on the road soon here in Coweta. I am slightly nervous about it but also there is nothing more I would rather do than serve the citizens of my hometown.
It is coming up on you 8th year anniversary in Heaven and we are still missing you every second.
I just wanted to write a few lines and tell you hello. We miss you
