Deputy Donald Bond was shot and killed while investigating suspicious activity at a produce store in the early morning hours.

He had cleared from a call at 1:30 am. At 2:20 am dispatchers attempted to reach him via radio and phone, but were unsuccessful. Officers began searching for him and located his body at the produce stand.

Apparently, after clearing from the first call, he noticed suspicious activity at the produce stand, and began to investigate it without calling in.

A suspect had opened fire with an AK-47, striking Deputy Bond nine times. After the shooting, the suspect stole the front panel of Deputy Bond's vest and his service weapon.

Informants gave investigators the name and address of the suspect, who was arrested the next morning as he left his house. Officers observed the suspect throw Deputy Bond's gun and vest panel from his back porch before apprehending him. The suspect was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death by lethal injection.

Deputy Bond had been employed with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department for two years, and is survived by his wife, parents, brother, and sister.

Today it has been 15 years. Just seems like yesterday. I love and miss you. Each time of the year my heart is "breaking again", but some day soon this all will pass away and there will be love, joy and peace and we all will see our loved ones again. Until then........
