An emotional scene played out along Interstate 64 Saturday night as the bodies of two Virginia State Police troopers who died in a helicopter crash in Charlottesville were transported home to Richmond.
Cullen is survived by his wife and two sons, according to the release. "State law in Virginia says that the Virginia State Police has to investigate all aircraft crashes so that's why we responded to the scene". In addition to the deaths of the troopers and one other identified person, at least 34 people were injured in the vehicle ramming and other violence.
Cullen, of Midlothian, graduated from the Virginia State Police Academy in May 1994 and joined the Virginia State Police Aviation Unit in 1999.
The pilot, Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen is the son of Loudon County Commissioner, Henry Cullen.
For Trooper Berke Bates, who grew up in Nokesville, joining the Virginia State Police aviation unit was a "dream come true", his older brother said Sunday morning.
Trooper-Pilot Bates graduated from the Virginia State Police Academy in August 2004 as a member of the 107th Basic Session.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Jay and Berke, both of whom were our close friends and trusted members of our team".
This is a devastating loss for their families, the Virginia State Police, and the entire Commonwealth. "Jay Cullen had been flying me around for three-and-a-half years". Berke was devoted to our entire family as part of our Executive Protective Unit team for the past three years.
Bates, of Quinton, had just transferred to the aviation unit in July from the governor's protection detail. Our hearts go out to their wives and children, and we stand by to support them during this hard time. These heroes were a part of our family and we are simply heartbroken.
