Dep. Vernon Marconnet
Died in the line of duty 6/30/1988

On patrol near 35th Avenue and Carver Road, Deputy Marconnet stopped to investigate two suspicious vehicles. He found a father and three sons who had been drinking and arguing. Just after he called for backup, 9-1-1 received a call that an officer was in trouble. Police arrived to find the Deputy dead beside his car. When Marconnet was putting the older man into the patrol car, one of the sons grabbed the deputy's gun and gave it to his father. Deputy Marconnet was killed with his own weapon, and all four family members were tried for his murder.
