Patrolman George Raffield was working undercover in a local high school when he was murdered by two students from whom he had just purchased marijuana. The suspect murdered him because he thought he was a police officer.

The suspect was tried as an adult, convicted of murder, and sentenced to 45 years in prison. The second suspect accepted a plea bargain as a result of his testimony against the shooter.

Patrolman Raffield had served with the Midlothian Police Department for one year. He was survived by his parents and sister.

Cody thanks for sharing. I was junior in high school when this event occurred. At the time I did not realize the impact that your uncle's heroic actions made that day. But, now after watching the story on the ID channel, I totally understand the impact. I really hope that your students is taking in what you are sharing? Thank you for sharing. God Bless you and your family.
