Lt. Robert Dorn
Died in the line of duty 8/31/1965

Lt. Bob Dorn stopped to assist an apparently stalled car at 91st Avenue and Glendale. The driver had been visited recently by Deputies inquiring about his delinquent taxes. In panic over the possibility of losing his trailer home, the man jumped out of his truck and began firing with no warning. The fatally wounded Dorn returned fire. A passing motorist went to a phone and called the Sheriff. When deputies arrived, they found the Lieutenant's body lying beside his unmarked patrol car. The man who killed him was located within the hour and charged with murder after his non-serious bullet wounds were treated.
