Michael Ray Schaefer

Deputy Michael Schaefer suffered a fatal heart attack while struggling with a 16-year-old female who was possibly under the influence of narcotics and alcohol.

He and another deputy had responded to a domestic disturbance at 1:45 am involving a fight between the girl and another family member. When they arrived at the scene, they attempted to place the girl into custody but became involved in a struggle.

As they placed the girl into a patrol car, Deputy Schaefer collapsed. The girl was taken into custody on investigation of capital murder in connection with Deputy Schaefer's death.

Deputy Schaefer is survived by his wife, three sons, daughter, parents, four sisters, nieces, and nephews.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.
