The death of innocents always cuts deep. Of course, we have a special place in our hearts for Military and First Responders killed in the line of duty or otherwise. This case is particularly heartbreaking.

A Utah County Sheriff’s Deputy, his wife, brother and brother’s girlfriend were all killed in a tragic airplane crash near Cedar City, Utah.

Deputy Steven Eatchel was piloting the plane during a day trip and sightseeing venture over Zion National Park. At about 7:38PM the Iron County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue received an alert of a plane crash.

Over 22 people volunteered for the search and rescue effort to locate the victim, all 4 of which were found deceased. The cause of the crash is not yet known.

Deputy Eatchel and his wife leave behind four beautiful children:
