Bio: 'Trooper Tony' was born in Bucharest, Romania on Aug. 7, 1967. His family subsequently emigrated to the United States, and Tony graduated from Harrison High school in Harrison, NJ. He went on to serve honorably in the US Army on active duty from 1986 to 1994 and in the Army Reserve until his retirement in 2008.

Tony joined the Washington State Patrol on Dec. 11, 1995, as a Trooper cadet assigned to the Training Division. He received his commission in July 1996, and reported to District Eight assigned to the Poulsbo detachment. Tony transferred to the Bremerton detachment in October 2002.

In 2002, Tony was appointed a Problem Oriented Public Safety (POPS) Trooper, assigned to the Poulsbo Aggressive Driver Apprehension Team (ADAT.)

'Tony might have come to this country in search of a better life, but instead he enriched the lives of all those around him,'said WSP Chief John R. Batiste. 'We thank his family for sharing him with us just as we share their grief at his passing.'

Survived by:
Erick Radulescu - Son
Leslie and Maria Radulescu - Parents
& brothers, Mario Radulescu and George Nicholson; and sister, Dianna Radulescu.

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location:   Gorst, WA   USA   Thu. Feb. 23, 2012
Summary: Trooper Tony Radulescu was shot and killed while making a traffic stop on a driver of a pickup truck on State Route 16 at Anderson Hill Road, in Gorst, shortly before 1:00 am.

He had radioed in his location and the pickup truck's license plate and description to dispatchers. When dispatchers were unable to contact him for several minutes, a Kitsap County sheriff's deputy was sent to check on his status and discovered him laying wounded outside of his patrol car. He was transported to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma where he succumbed to his wounds a short time later.

Disposition: The vehicle that Trooper Radulescu had stopped was found abandoned on a country road approximately three hours later. A SWAT team deployed to the registered owner's home and as they approached, the suspect committed suicide.
