Patrolman Neupert was shot and killed after he stopped three suspects in an area known for high levels of illegal narcotics activity. As Patrolman Neupert was searching the suspects, one suspect drew a small caliber revolver and fired once at Patrolman Neupert, striking him in the throat. The suspects then put his body in a nearby ditch. An off duty officer who happened across the scene located Patrolman Neupert's body in the ditch.

The suspects were located several weeks later and were all shot and killed by other officers who were attempting to arrest them.

God Bless the Fallen......... In the Greater Glory of God

But if I could get ahold of Wortmann and Hornsby please take note.

I did not know Neupert, I was OPCSO, but may God send a major blessing, where your soul is soon to go. AMEN
