Quick remembered as pleasant, unflappable mentor


RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Whenever the Waynesboro police were breaking in a new reserve officer, they liked to team him up with Kevin Quick because they knew he would set the right example.

Waynesboro Police Sgt. Brian Edwards says Quick's value as a mentor was just one of the positive traits he exhibited in his professional and personal life. He also describes Quick as pleasant, unflappable, reliable and devoted to his family.

The 45-year-old Quick was found dead last Thursday, five days after he failed to show up as expected to visit his girlfriend and their 4-month-old daughter. Nobody has been charged with murder, but two people have been charged with stealing his SUV and four others have been charged with gang participation in connection with the case.
