K9 Caeser and his handler, Police Officer Roy Nelson, were killed in an automobile accident while responding to a burglary call.
They were traveling on State Road A1A just east of the South Causeway when a pick-up truck pulled out from Richmond Drive. When Officer Nelson tried to avoid a collision, his patrol car hit a guardrail and overturned. Officer Nelson and K-9 Caesar both died from their injuries.
The driver of the truck fled the scene. He came forward two weeks later and the state attorney's office declined to charge him.
