From the very first show, I was hooked on Alaska State Troopers. I own every season and I look forward to the each one as it comes out.
I was very saddened to read about the deaths of two troopers today, one of whom had been on the show.
Trooper Gabriel Rich and Sgt Patrick Johnson were killed in the line of duty May 1, 2014. Trooper Rich was from Pennsylvania and is survived by a fiancee and two children. Sgt. Johnson was born in Fairbanks and is survived by his wife and three daughters.
This is a vivid reminder that AST's is not just a "show," it's real life.
