Officer Michelle Lawless was killed in an ATV accident in the Holeyland / Rotenberger Wildlife Management Area while on patrol for poachers between 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm. Her ATV struck a metal gate and overturned, trapping her underneath.

After she failed to respond to a routine radio check for her location, another officer went to locate her and found her pinned beneath the vehicle. She was flown to a hospital in Delray where she succumbed to her injuries.

Officer Lawless had served with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for five years and was assigned to Broward County.

Michelle, you were a greatest friend during high school! We were inseparable at times. You were the closest thing to a sister I ever had. I think of you every time I hear "Dream Weaver"! Everytime! I just found yesterday out that you passed and I'm very sad but also very happy we touched each others lives. I enjoyed all the great fellowship and conversations we had. I hope to see you again someday. Rest for now.
