Constable Hunt was shot and killed by an escaped mental patient who'd tried to rape a woman.

Constable Hunt chased the suspect over an embankment when the suspect shot him. Hunt was able to return fire, killing the suspect. Hunt was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but was released and died several days later.

Constable Hunt was a decorated veteran. He had lost his arm in an industrial accident and was still appointed as constable because of his character.

Constable Hunt was survived by his wife and three children.
