Sheriff Cameron Thomas was killed when he attempted to jump to safety from a window of a hotel that was on fire. Sheriff Thomas was in Richmond, Virginia, to address the state legislature concerning fee officers. Sheriff Thomas and the state delegate from Charlottesville were staying in the Lexington Hotel when it caught fire.
