It’s unclear if the photograph was taken when Bush was vice-president or was the president-elect, but the photo shows Bush shaking hands with KSP Trooper Johnny Edrington.
Edrington was shot and killed with his own weapon during a traffic stop on December 21, 1988.
No one was ever charged in the case.
Kentucky State Police and the group Dedicated To Serve – 4 Decades Of Fire And Emergency Service In Kentucky shared the photo in honor of the passing of the 41st President. The picture was credited to Diane Chandler.
