Edward Dean Rose

Jailer Rose was stabbed to death during an escape attempt from the Benton County Jail. When Jailer Rose opened a cell door an inmate threw hot water in his face. The inmate's brother, also an inmate at the jail, then wrapped a towel around Jailer Rose's head. The two inmates beat him and then stabbed him four times with his own pocket knife. The suspects freed a third prisoner and then fled. All three men were apprehended. One of the brothers later died in prison of natural causes.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 34th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace
