Chief Deputy Peacock and Sheriff Thomas Auger were killed in an airplane accident while en route to Big Springs, Texas, to extradite a prisoner. The prisoner had escaped from the West Carroll Parish Jail several years earlier.

The plane took off during a severe thunderstorm and crashed only minutes into its flight. Sheriff Auger, Chief Deputy Peacock, and two local farmers who were accompanying them, were killed.

My mind and heart are with you everyday. I am so proud of the kind of man you were to all. I have very precious memories of you and I. I wish so that I could just sit in that green recliner with you, that I did so many times, and tell you about the 4 wonderful grandchildren you have. We all love and miss you so much Daddy. Your memory will live on through your grandchildren and great-grandchildren. You would be very proud of them all!

All my Love,
Penny
