TOP Statement From Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on the...

It is with a heavy heart that we learn of the death of Trooper Christopher Skinner, who died in the line of duty earlier today while conducting a traffic stop on I-81. Trooper Skinner selflessly dedicated 13 years of his life to the New York State Police, and his actions have impacted the lives of many. His commitment to the people of this State is commendable and will no doubt be remembered for years to come. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I offer my condolences to his friends and family, and express my deepest gratitude for Trooper Skinners service.
