Deputy Blevins was the victim of a grudge killing. A man, whom he had arrested the week before for being drunk and disruptive at a dance, shot him in the head as walked out of a grocery store in Peterstown. State Troopers surrounded the suspect at his home and took him into custody a short time later.

The suspect was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to 5 to 18 years in prison.

Deputy Blevins had served with the agency for 1 year and was survived by his wife and two children.

I haven't been to visit here since 2012. I made it; retired early but finally finished. I never got to make any child's eyes pop wide open by driving in the driveway and turning on the lights like you did for me once but I did make it through some close calls. I want to thank you for that.

I hope you can see from these reflections how much you've done to help us all. No one should die in vain and while I'm sure your family knows you didn't I wanted to make sure that others know that too.
