The subject named on the eviction order was an activist in the Occupy Denver movement. The subject exited the home and then reentered it, with Corporal Carrigan and other deputies following back inside to stop him.

Deputy Carrigan - The loss to your community is almost overwhelming. They seem strong enough, perhaps because they knew you, so well, to rise up better and not bitter about your being taken from them. You made a difference, on the job and off.

Thank you for your service to the State of Colorado and especially to the people of Park County. May God grant you eternal rest and may His perpetual light shine upon you.
