Ledger

K9 Ledger died of heat exhaustion inside of his handler's patrol car while it was parked outside of the La Salle County Courthouse.

His handler had left the vehicle running, in accordance with policy, while conducting business inside the courthouse. When he returned outside he noticed that the vehicle was no longer running and he found K9 ledger on the driver's floor board with his head on the gas pedal. It was later determined that the vehicle had run out of gas, causing it to turn off. The vehicle had been driven approximately 100 miles since it had been filled up previously. The vehicle's heat alarm system did not operate once the engine stopped running.

Ledger had served with the La Salle County Sheriff's Office for one year.
