Updated 5 years ago

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va) issued the following statement on the shooting of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum:

 “Today, our hearts go out to Sheriff Crum’s wife, Rosie, his entire family, the staff of the Mingo County Sheriff’s Department, and his countless friends all across the area.  Dedicated law enforcement officers throughout our Nation mourn the loss of one of their own. 

Though Sheriff Crum had just begun his term, he was not new to the cause of justice, and, from day one as Sheriff, he hit the ground running with vigor and determination.  Eugene’s dedication to fairness and a full measure of justice for all is well known.  Every law-abiding citizen demands justice for this tragedy that has shaken our sense of decency, but not our resolve, to maintain law and order.  In the coming days, I ask that we continue to remember Rosie and her family in our thoughts and prayers.”
