PALOS HEIGHTS, Ill. -- A large crowd of mourners is expected at a Palos Heights church for funeral for a 28-year-old Illinois State Police Trooper who was killed in a fiery wreck.
Tuesday’s funeral for James Sauter begins at 11 a.m. at Morraine Valley Church.
The trooper from Vernon Hills was pronounced dead last week after a semi-truck hit his squad car as it idled along the side of Interstate 294.
Sauter became a trooper in 2008.
A visitation was held Monday.
