Deputy Sheriff Sean Theriot was killed during a foot chase of a 19-year-old suspect wanted for various counts of assault and battery.

He ran into a wooded area during the pursuit and contact was lost with him. The subject turned himself in approximately three hours later and stated that Deputy Theriot had fallen into a bayou during the foot pursuit. The subject then watched as Deputy Theriot struggled for his life and eventually drowned. His body was found in a bayou near Dulac, Louisiana.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder in connection with Deputy Theriot's death and was sentenced to life in prison.

Deputy Theriot was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office for one year. He is survived by his wife and two children.

You're Memorial Picture rides above my head in my unit, has so since you left us. You're like an angel watching over me. You're picture is a constant reminder to me that we as LE are not 10 feet tall and bullet proof. I dare to say that picture and the reality that it reflects has kept me alive all these years by forcing me to be smarter and train harder. To not take unnecessary chances and to live my life right because I never know when it may be taken from me.

We worked shift together and although I only knew you for about a year, I saw that you were a good man, and a constant professional. An officer to admire and a friend to be proud of. A bright and successful future in LE was where you were headed.

When my day comes, I'll see you again, but until then, continue to keep a watchful eye on me and all your "Brothers in Blue". We all, miss you!
