Correctional Officer Aaron Schoffstall was killed when he fell over a rail of the Wabash River Bridge on State Road 63.

While conducting the investigation, Correctional Officer Schoffstall fell over the rail to the pavement, approximately 33 feet below. Weather conditions were snowy at the time, causing the bridge to be icy.

Here it is November 28,2017. It’s been 17 years since I have seen your smile, heard your voice and laugh or gotten a big hug. You live on in my heart and always will as long as I live & breathe. I miss you everyday and I know your daughter, brother , wife and everyone who loved you does too. There’s not a time you aren’t on my mind and closure doesn’t exist ,you just learn to deal with life a different way. I know you and Dad are together and so we have our own guardian angels. Love you always son, Mom
