    Comment on this story

    A state trooper has died after he was shot while conducting a traffic stop in Western North Carolina on Interstate 40 late Tuesday.

    The identity of the trooper had not been released early Wednesday. State Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Everett Clendenin said the trooper was conducting a traffic stop Haywood County in the eastbound lanes of I-40 near exit 31 at 10:20 p.m. on Tuesday.

    A passerby stopped to help and called for assistance. The trooper was transported to Mission Hospital in Asheville and later died. Haywood County Sheriff’s Department has a suspect in custody, Clendenin said. No further information was available early Wednesday.

    RIP Trooper! May God bless you as you now serve with St Michael to watch over your brethren; and, may He give comfort to your family in their hours of grief.


    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    CANTON, N.C. - A 24-year-old N.C. Highway Patrol trooper who became a father for the first time two weeks ago was shot and killed Tuesday night while making a traffic stop on Interstate 40 west of Asheville.

    A Florida man with a lengthy criminal record was arrested a short time after the shooting and faces murder charges.
    The victim has been identified as David Blanton Jr., who joined the Highway Patrol in May 2006. Officials say he is the first N.C. Highway Patrol trooper to be killed in the line of duty in 11 years.
    Lt. Everett Clendenin, a spokesman for the Highway Patrol, said Blanton was killed after stopping a vehicle in the eastbound lane of I-40 about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday. It happened near the city of Pisgah, in Haywood County.
    Clendenin said Blanton had stopped a vehicle that was towing a car. Blanton got the driver out of the vehicle, but an altercation ensued. During that altercation, Clendenin said, Blanton was shot twice.
    It is not clear whether the suspect used the trooper's gun or another weapon.
    Police say the suspect lingered at the scene for a few minutes, apparently looking for something in the trooper's vehicle. A witness called 911 and reported that the trooper had been shot.
    Police say the suspect drove east a short distance on I-40, then got off at exit 31, turning left on N.C. 215. Law enforcement personnel from the Highway Patrol, the Haywood County Sheriff's Office, and the Canton Police Department responded.
    Canton police spotted the vehicle a short distance from I-40, off Newfound Road, and took the suspect into custody.
    Clendenin said Edwardo Wong II, of Ormond Beach, Fla., has been arrested and charged with Blanton's murder. Police found narcotics and weapons in Wong's car, Clendenin said. The suspect is being held in jail in Waynesville today.
    Police say Wong has a long criminal record that includes felony assault on a law enforcement officer, drug violations, and possession of a firearm.
    Blanton was from the town of Sylva and graduated from Smoky Mountain High School in 2002. He was married and had one child, Clendenin said. Blanton is the 59th trooper to die in duty since the N.C. Highway Patrol was formed in 1929.

    That is so tragic
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
