Memorial being held for trooper slain in 1988

COLUMBIA, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky State Police trooper slain nearly 26 years ago will be remembered at a service in Campbellsville this week.

Thirty-four-year-old Trooper Johnny M. Edrington was shot and killed Dec. 21, 1988, during a traffic stop near London in Laurel County. No arrest was ever made.

Edrington was assigned to Post 11 in London and had been with state police for three years. He was survived by his wife, who was expecting the couple's first child when he was killed.

The memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. EDT Friday at the Brookside Cemetery in Campbellsville, where Edrington was buried.

U.S. 68 in Taylor County was named the Trooper Johnny M. Edrington Memorial Highway.
