NY State Police commander Jeffrey Cicora dies from 9/11-related illness

Retired New York State Police Sergeant Jeffrey M. Cicora, 53, has died of site-related cancer, reports Chris Libonati for Syracuse.com.

He worked as a K9 officer for some of his 24-year police career. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, he and his K9 partner, Devitt, searched airports, planes and other transportation sites for explosives. He also spent time at the World Trade Center site after the attacks.

When he was battling the cancer that killed him, he organized a party with toys for children fighting cancer.
