Sergeant Hoskie Gene was killed after responding to a call of breaking and entering at a local store. Sergeant Gene discovered two men fleeing on foot and gave chase. A struggle ensued and Sergeant Gene was strangled by one suspect as the second suspect beat him with a flashlight. Sergeant Gene died of the strangulation. The two suspects stole his patrol car, gun, and ammunition. Another unit was dispatched to check on him and discovered his body around 1:30 am along Arizona Route 98.

The two suspects were apprehended the next day after crashing the patrol car.

Sergeant Gene had served with the Navajo Division of Public Safety for 3 years and was assigned to the Kayenta District. He is survived by his five children and seven grandchildren.

Dad,
what words shall we use to describe our lost, our hurt. We miss you so much,. We all do our best to live by the examples, teaching that you have left us with. But in fear of letting you down we go so far in hopes that it pleases you. We love and miss you so, we only wish to make you proud of what we do. Our lives were never the same since the day you were taken from us, but we live each day in hopes that you remain apart of us all. We keep you in our hearts and memories, but that will never compare to to having you here with us. Dad we miss and love you so much. Continue to keep watch over us.
