Connecticut State Police will escort the body of U.S. Capitol Police Officer William Evans after the flight carrying his remains arrives at Bradley International Airport at approximately 5:50 p.m. today, Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
Motorcycle members of the State Police Traffic Services Unit will be joined by police from Massachusetts in a motorcade to North Adams, Massachusetts, where Officer Evans will be laid to rest. The motorcade will exit the airport onto Route 75 and travel through Suffield and Enfield before crossing the state line into Massachusetts via Interstate 91.
Officer Evans was killed in the line of duty on April 2 after a suspect rammed a vehicle into him at a barricade near the U.S. Capitol.
Media interested in covering the motorcade are asked to stage on Route 75 at the corner of Spring Street (see attached photo for circled locations).
