Deputy Robert Talburt was killed in an automobile accident while responding to a burglary call. Deputy Talburt's patrol car hit a piece of mud in the road left over from a construction crew. Deputy Talburt lost control of the vehicle and stuck a telephone pole.

A civilian came across the accident and radioed the incident in on Deputy Talburt's radio.

The burglary call was unfounded.

Bob Talburt was my brother in-law. I will forever remember that dark morning when we were notified. His memorial was so touching, with so many law enforcement agencies honoring him. He would be so proud of his 6-year old daughter at the time, who is now a Veteranarian with a beautiful daughter. I will miss his sense of humor, but look forward to Heaven when we will all be together again.
