Funeral planned for fallen police officer in IL”

Cox was found near the truck and pronounced dead at a hospital. Police reported that the officer died of blunt-force trauma from being hit by a truck, while the truck's driver apparently died of gunshot wounds fired by Cox, the Chicago Tribune reports.

A separate autopsy shows that 49-year old Eddie Patterson Jr., is believed to have been shot by Cox.

Responding officers found a single vehicle accident about two blocks from where the stop originated.

The incident remains under investigation, which is being conducted by the Winnebago Boone County Integrity Task Force. At the time of his death, Cox had been with the department for less than a year. He received an honorable discharge from the US Army National Guard in 2010 and was a graduate of Northern Illinois University. The officer's death has been ruled a homicide.

'The Rockford Police Department expresses its honest gratitude for the outpouring of support it has received from the Mayor, City Council, and the community, ' O'Shea said. "He paid the ultimate price while working to keep our communities safe".

The visitation for Cox will be held Friday from 3 p.m.to 9 p.m.at First Free Rockford Church, 2223 N. Mulford Road, with the law enforcement walk-through is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Friday.

A police funeral service will start at 10am on Saturday at the church.
