Zachary Cottongim Death, Cause Of Death – It is with great sadness that we have learned, LMPD Officer Zachary Cottongim #7239 has succumbed to his injuries sustained earlier this morning. We pray for his wife, children and his family, along with his LMPD family during this very difficult time. He was assisting with a vehicle accident on I64 when a vehicle struck Officer Cottongim. He was outside of his cruiser at the time and was transported to U of L Hospital. He passed away this evening.
While it’s a story having an impact on many of his family members and friends, it’s also hard for anyone who met him. Mills is the founder of the Southend Street Angels, a local nonprofit that focuses on homeless outreach. She met Officer Cottongim during a stress call for one of her clients, and being the bright and talented officer chief Erika Shields said he was, he resolved the issue. However, there was one thing about their interaction that day that stuck out to mills.
“He was compassionate, he was respectful, he knew how to engage people when they worked with him,” Mills said.
