Jessica Ebbighausen cause of death

Ebbighausen was pronounced dead at the scene. Two other officers and Rheaume were taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center for what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Rheaume was transferred to the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington.

State police said they are investigating the role deterioration and speed played in the crash and are working with the Rutland County State’s Attorney on possible charges. It was not immediately known if Rheaume is being represented by an attorney.

Ebbighausen, of Ira, Vermont, began working with the Rutland Police Department in May as a part-time officer, state police said. She was scheduled to begin training in August at the Vermont Police Academy to become a full-time officer, police said. “We are hurting right now,” Rutland City Police Chief Brian Kilcullen said Friday as he appealed for community support, according to the Rutland Herald.


Ebbighausen wanted to be a police officer since she was 9 years old, Kilcullen said. She interned with the police department during high school, he said. “She always had a smile on her face,” Kilcullen said. “We were looking forward to having her as part of our family.”

The department had recently changed its policies to discourage high-speed chases, he said, but did not discuss the changes further Friday, the newspaper reported. “I’m here today to really mourn the loss of a family member,” she said. “State police are conducting the investigation. At some point, we will review everything.”
