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

Correctional Officer Schoffstall and another deputy were in uniform, riding to work, when they stopped to investigate an accident scene. 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.

Correctional Officer Schoffstall had served with the Vigo County Sheriff's Department for four years. He was survived by his wife, daughter, brother and parents.

Aaron and I met at Space Camp when we were kids and later went to Space Academy. I know this is a blast from the past but we called each other and were pen pals for quite a few years. He lived in Indiana and I was in NY. We were young but really had a great friendship. Whenever I was struggling with something in middle school I could always depend on Aaron for encouragement His letters were always funny and witty. I just really loved knowing Aaron. I went to find him on Facebook to reconnect and came across this. I am so sorry for the loss of Aaron. His family is in my thoughts and prayers. I am truly blessed to have known Aaron, and I am thankful God crossed our paths when He did. Aaron really was a blessing to me.
