Motive unknown in Va. Tech officer shooting
By ZINIE CHENSAMPSONThe Associated Press
BLACKSBURG, Va. —The Virginia Tech policeofficer who was shot deadat his parked cruiser was atrained firearms and defenseinstructor with a specialty incrisis intervention. His deathleaves investigators puzzlingover how and why a gun-man walked up to the patrolcar during a traffic stop,killed the officer and woundup dead himself in a nearbyparking lot.The campus shootingprompted officials to lockdown the university for hoursThursday while police andSWAT teams searched theschool, the scene in 2007 of the deadliest mass shootingin modern U.S. history.Authorities have in-carvideo from officer Deriek W.Crouse’s cruiser that showsa male suspect with a hand-gun at the officer’s car atthe time of the shooting. Butthey have not identified thegunman and say they don’tknow what motivated thekilling or whether there wasany link between the shooterand Crouse.Crouse, an Army vet-eran and married father of five, was killed after pull-ing a driver over in a schoolparking lot. Police said thegunman was not involved inthe traffic stop. Instead, heapproached, shot the officerand then fled on foot beforeapparently killing himself inanother lot.“At this point, we haven’tbeen able to establish anykind of immediate connec-tion between the officer andthe shooter,” State Policespokeswoman Corinne Gellertold The Associated Presslate Thursday. “That’s obvi-ously something that’s beinglooked into.”State police said in a newsrelease early today that bal-listics tests confirmed Crouseand the deceased suspect hadbeen shot by the same hand-gun. The tests have “offi-cially linked the two fatalshootings,” the release said.The news release saidclothing found inside a dis-carded backpack recoveredby Blacksburg police seemedto match that of the malesubject in the officer’s video.Police said they were awaitingconfirmation of the deceasedsuspect’s identity as well asautopsy results from the med-ical examiner in Roanoke.The events unfolded onthe same day Virginia Techofficials were in Washington,fighting a federal govern-ment fine over their handlingof the 2007 massacre where33 people were killed. Theshooting brought back pain-ful memories. About 150 stu-dents gathered silently for acandlelight vigil on a fieldfacing the stone plaza memo-rial for the 2007 victims. Anofficial vigil is planned fortonight.Police would not rule out aconnection between the shoot-ings and an armed robberyWednesday in Radford, about10 miles from Blacksburg.According to media reports,Radford police were lookingfor a man they consideredarmed and dangerous after anarmed robbery at a local realestate office.Police said Crouse calledin the traffic stop at 12:15p.m. After a few minutespassed without hearing fromthe officer, dispatch tried toget in touch with him, butdidn’t get a response. About15 minutes later, policereceived the first call from awitness who said an officerhad been shot at the CassellColiseum parking lot and thegunman had fled on foot.Authorities refused to saywhether Crouse was able todefend himself or fire back athis assailant.Local, state and federalofficials responded immedi-ately. At 1 p.m., an officersaw a suspicious man in aparking lot. He had a gunshotwound and a gun nearby.This time, though, the

DELPHOS—Whenfifteen-year-old ClaraBergedieck of Werther,Germany, decided to spenda few months in Delphos,she was excited to learn shewould be with the family of Gene and Ginger Denman.“We’d heard a lot aboutthe program before we cameand I had heard the Denmanswere a great family and thatthere were a lot of siblings,”Bergedieck said. “Back home,I have one older sister and myparents. Here I have five hostbrothers, all of them but onehave moved out, and thenthere’s my host sister, Tanya.It was nice because I got toknow them a little throughemail and skype before Icame here.”Bergedieck is attendingJefferson High School; she’shappy to have the opportunityto keep up with some of herfavorite activities while in theUnited States.“I played the piano for 10or 11 years in Germany andI was teaching some otherkids, too. My host family hasa piano, so I get to prac-tice here, which is nice,” shesaid. “I danced in Germanyand here I go to Dancer byGina. Back in Germany, Iwas teaching myself to playthe guitar.”Bergedieck has noticedsome differences in culture.“The people here arevery friendly and open butwe expected that,” she said.“School is very differentbecause you do the samething every day but you alsoget to share more here. I alsoknew there would be a lotof fast food. I really like thetacos and pizza here but Idon’t really have any favor-ites; I love it all.”“I really like this country;it’s just nice here. The shop-ping is fun and I got to goon Black Friday, so that wasinteresting,” she continued.“I’ve seen some movies, too,like August Rush and I sawBreaking Dawn at the theater.My favorite things so far areCedar Point and all of thepeople I’ve met.”Though Bergedieck isenjoying her time in America,she still misses home.“It’s hard at first becauseyou’re new and you don’tknow the language very wellbut after a time you get moreconfident,” she said. “I reallymiss my family, my homeand my friends but it’s not sobad because I have a familyhere, too.“When I go home, I wish Icould just take everything withme but most of all my friendsand host family. I really thinkthose are the most importantthings. I will definitely comeback to visit someday. It’svery expensive, so I don’tthink I’ll be able to do it toooften, but I hope I can.”

on an event held last spring atReliant Stadium in Houston.He stated at the time the VanWert event, like the show inHouston, would be differentfrom what many perceive amotorcycle rally to be.“I want it to be a rally thatis not a party,” Van Wart said.“I want it to be a rally wherepeople can come out and seethe latest and greatest in tech-nology, all the new parts andaccessories that are available,and I want them to be able toput them on their bike rightthere at the Fairgrounds. Theevent will have an expo feel toit. Normally, most rallies thatgo on from people’s opinionis about the beer and T-shirts,not really making money forthe vendors. I think a lot of vendors are wanting to makemoney and generate revenue.They are paying to travel andpay fees to come, and theywant to see a return on theirinvestment.”Specific events for the rallyare being placed on the four-day schedule. Among them arean ATV world-record jumpattempt from Van Wert’s ownHenry “The Pitbull” Rife onthe final day of the event. Asport bike freestyle team from7th Letter Entertainment willcome from Texas to put ona show at the fairgrounds aswell.Also on tap for the weekendwill be live music.“We’re waiting to seewhich bands will work goodwith the rally before we bookthem,” Van Wart explained.Also booked is a Houston orga-nization that will conduct bikergames and contests for the pub-lic to participate in. A golf cartrental company is on board torent carts for the event. Boththe Comfort Inn and HolidayInn Express in Van Wert aresetting aside blocks of roomsfor the June weekend. RVspots at the Fairgrounds arealso available.“This event is more of abusiness-to-business event. Iwant it to be where my ven-dors make money and do busi-ness-to-business transactions,”Van Wart stressed. “There isso much we are going to havethere, and it takes so long toput the full program together.”He noted that the full Rally inthe Corn schedule will not befinalized until early spring.The promotions arm of VanWart’s company has been gear-ing up already.“We’re just going aftersponsors right now. We havea few already coming onboard. Those will be releasedin the near future,” Van Wartrevealed. “We’re working with16 Harley Davidson dealershipswithin 150 miles of Van Wert,who will be doing promotionsfor the event, and maybe pokerruns and that kind of stuff.”Another partnership is withThunder Road magazine, apublication which is distrib-uted free at motorcycle dealer-ships in Ohio. More promotionwill be seen in early 2012. Anearly version of the event website is already active at rally-inthecorn.com.Meanwhile, Van Wart iscontinuing to focus on makingthe event a winning proposi-tion for everyone.“We want to make a rallywhere it’s entertaining yetit’s profitable for everybodyinvolved. That will bringmoney into the communitywhen that happens, and localbusinesses will get revenuefrom it, and the local charitieswe bring on board will benefit,too. The public benefits by see-ing everything. The businessesbenefit by being able to sellproduct to the people,” he con-cluded.
