All, it has been my honor to research the lives of many of the peace officers who have died in the line of duty while working for the LASD or the agencies that we have absorbed over the years. I am currently researching the life of Officer Edgington.
A couple of days ago retired Deputy Sheriff Chris Miller, who also produced the training film based on Deputy Edgington's death, and I interviewed Elizabeth Bloch who witnessed this incident but was never interviewed at the time regarding what she saw. Elizabeth provided an entirely different take on what transpired that day than what ended up in the official record. She reiterated to us what she said in her remembrance about Officer Edgington above that he likely saved her life. That was never known at the time.
I am interested in contacting anyone else who was witness that day or responded to this incident to get your version of events. I would also like to speak with family members, if any would be so kind as to talk with me.
My email address is [email protected]
Our fallen heroes should not be forgotten and it is my quest to make sure that they are known as more than just a date of death and a description of the incident that took them from us.
I can tell by many of the remembrances left about Officer Edgington above that he was a wonderful man. If any of you would like to help me do full justice to his story, please contact me.
