Deputy James Cook was killed in an accident while responding to a domestic violence call.

As Deputy Cook was responding, a deer struck the front of his cruiser causing his vehicle's airbag to inflate and obstruct his view. Deputy Cook's vehicle ran off the roadway, struck several trees and killed him instantly.

Deputy Cook had served with the DeWitt County Sheriff's Office for eight years. He was survived by his parents and three siblings.

I was thinking today about our years together. The trips we took, the laughter, and that one special destination we never told anyone about. I will always remember you with laughter not tears. So glad we reconnected in light of your sudden passing. You were a good man gone to soon. Xoxo.
