Officer Elmer Rumrill succumbed to injuries sustained five weeks earlier when a large overhead door struck him in the head. The accident occurred when he noticed that the factory door was open during his beat. As he attempted to close it, the door came down quickly and struck him on the back of his head.

He was preparing to return to duty after five weeks when he suddenly lapsed into a coma and passed away.

Officer Rumrill had served with the agency for 5 years. He was survived by his wife and three children.
