High-Speed Pursuit Through Franklin County Ends Near Sullivan

Several local law enforcement agencies were involved in a high-speed pursuit through Franklin County. According to Pacific police chief, Matt Mansell, the pursuit started in Pacific around 11pm on the evening of October 9, 2012 when officers were notified of a suspicious vehicle that was found to be stolen. The driver took off after an officer approached his vehicle. The driver headed west on I-44 at speeds topping 100 miles per hour until he was eventually stopped near Sullivan. Sullivan police, Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputies, and the State Highway Patrol assisted in the chase and were able to put an end to the twenty-seven mile chase with the use of spike strips. When the vehicle was no longer able to be driven on rims, the driver bailed out and gave a short foot pursuit before being apprehended by a Pacific police officer.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
