Police Officer Kelmer One Feather was killed while transporting two suspects, one of whom had just been arrested for DUI.

The DUI suspect was handcuffed, but the second suspect was not. Both subjects were placed in the back seat of Officer One Feather's Ford Expedition. Because the vehicle had no cage, one or both of the suspects were able to enter the front of the vehicle and a struggle ensued. During the struggle the vehicle crashed, killing Officer One Feather and the un-handcuffed suspect. The second suspect was taken into custody.

Officer One Feather had served in law enforcement for 20 years.

We did not meet in this life, but I have known you through your son. He is a good, honorable and strong man. He honors you with his life and choices. I know you through him and have met you many times through his stories. You are missed, but never forgotten.
