Dep. Rex Stone
Died in the line of duty 1/18/1971

In a single day, two veteran deputies were killed while serving a civil writ of attachment. At 1300 hours they arrived at 5344 East Van Buren Street to repossess a mobile home in satisfaction for an $833 bank judgment. The owner shot Deputy LaRue in the back four times and then engaged in a shoot-out with Deputy Stone. All three died at the scene.
