Riverside, Missouri Patrolman Jeff Taylor has passed away from injuries he sustained from being struck by lightning while assisting in Joplin during the aftermath of the May 22 tornado. This hits pretty close to home for many at my agency, as several of us were in Joplin when it happened. Godspeed, Ptlm. Taylor. http://www.kansascity.com/2011/06/03/2923902/riverside-officer-dies-after-lightning.html Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
