The 7 Most Painful One Chicago Deaths (PHOTOS)

Hallie Thomas (Teri Reeves)
Before Casey (Jesse Spencer) married Gabby Dawson (Monica Raymund), he was engaged to the doctor. And he was the one who tried to do everything possible to save her when the clinic she worked in was set on fire.
Cornelius Rhodes (D.W. Moffett)
Connor (Colin Donnell) and his father had quite the contentious relationship, but they could have possibly repaired some of it as Connor came to realize that he didn't remember everything about his childhood correctly. However, then Cornelius died from an overdose of insulin. (The person responsible may or may not have been Ava
Benny Severide (Treat Williams)
Benny died of a stroke, and Severide (Taylor Kinney) didn't even get a chance to see his father one last time. They never had the best relationship, nor did Benny and Boden, but the loss greatly affected Severide afterwards.

Justin Voight (Josh Segarra)
Just as Justin had finally cleaned up his act and had a family of his own, his attempt to help a friend led to his death. Voight (Jason Beghe) found his son in the trunk of a car, shot in the head, and Justin was later taken off life support in the hospital.
Nadia Decotis (Stella Maeve)
Nadia was an escort before Erin (Sophia Bush) helped her get clean and eventually get a job at CPD. She was even studying to become an officer herself. However, serial killer Gregory Yates (Dallas Roberts) kidnapped, raped, and murdered her, and there are few things as disturbing in the One Chicago universe as hearing what he did to her during his trial in a crossover with Law & Order: SVU
Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas)
Olinsky was in prison for a crime he didn't commit — and refused to turn his back on Voight — when he was stabbed multiple times. Those wounds would prove to be fatal, and Intelligence hasn't been the same without him.
Leslie Shay (Lauren German)
suffered its first major loss in the Season 3 premiere, when Shay didn't make it out after an explosion. The firehouse hasn't been the same since. Ambulance 61 hasn't been the same. And we especially miss Shay and Severide's friendship — there hasn't been another one like it in the One Chicago universe, and there probably never will be.
The One Chicago shows deal with life and death every day, and sometimes, it hits too close to home.
All three shows — Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., and Chicago Med — have lost characters, and some have been more heartbreaking than others. We're worried that that last could grow, especially considering the cliffhangers for Fire and Med in May.
Some are just unlucky in love, while it's time for others to find their match.
