Charleston, W.Va. - U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement after the death of State Trooper Eric Workman today.
“Gayle and I mourn tonight with the Workman family and the entire state of West Virginia. Over the past few days our state has now lost two brave souls in the line of duty, and no words will give comfort to their families or their brothers and sisters in law enforcement. But all of us must never take for granted what law enforcement and first responders do for each and every one of us: they put themselves in the line of danger so that we may be protected. May God bless them all.”
