54 year old, unarmed retired Sunday School teacher, Patricia Cook, was shot to death while sitting in her vehicle, in broad daylight, by a Culpeper Town Police Officer. 10 weeks after the shooting, the police officer is still unnamed. No charges have been filed, and he remains on the payroll. At the most recent town council meeting, citizens were not allowed to discuss the shooting, and no information has been made available by the Virginia State Police regarding the status of the investigation. After 10 weeks, it seems reasonable that the officer either be cleared, by releasing details explaining why deadly force was required, or charged in the death of this unarmed woman.
