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.

Hey Brother,
I have to talk to you here, I am to far from your resting place to visit.
For some reason I have you on my mind a lot in resent days. It has been so long since you were taken from us, but seems like it was yesterday. I sat in my boys room telling them stories about you and I in Kayenta and Pinon, while listening to "Knocking on Heavens Door". It hurts, but is also some what comforting to remember the stories and pass them onto my children and hopefully they will in turn pass them on and you will always be part of us.
