RCMP are mourning one of their own today.
Corporal Trevor O’Keefe, a long-time member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, passed away suddenly yesterday.
In recent years, O’Keefe worked out of Holyrood Detachment before transferring to St. John’s where he took on the role of Media Relations Officer.

As the first responding officer following the shooting death of Donald Dunphy in Mitchell’s Brook in 2015, he testified at the Dunphy Inquiry in the spring.
He was known for his ready smile, his sense of humour, and his love of practical jokes.
Funeral arrangements have yet to be announced.
