I did not know Ronnie before the night of his accident. I had the very unpleasant experience of investigating his crash. I can still see the scene. That night was by far the worst shift of my career. We can't comprehend why these things happen to good people like Ronnie, but we can keep his memory alive on this site. My prayers continue to go out to his family, friends and law enforcement brothers and sisters. Rest in peace Ronnie.
