During the early morning hours of February 13, 2014, Officer Chris Martin came upon a truck with its hazard lights on, on Il Route 13 headed out of Carbondale, IL. He proceeded with a motorist assist.  The driver of the truck, Gaege Bethune, informed Officer Martin he just got into an altercation with Pravin Varughese, of whom retreated into the woods.  However, instead of following protocol and pursuing Varughese, Officer Chris Martin did nothing and left.  That night, Varughese succumb to hypothermia; his body was found days later.

Officer Martin's actions, or better yet inactions, from that night have caused a catastrophic chain of events for many lives.  Countless family member's and friend's lives ruined, a young father facing up to sixty years in prison, and finally the life of a son.  We are calling for the termination or resignation of Officer Martin from the District 13 Illinois State Police Department.
