Rest in Peace Chief Lee Dixon. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Little River-Academy, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell will forever gnaw on the carcass of your murderer. May his screams of anguish rise up from the lake of fire for all evil doers to hear.
