Carlos S. Stuteville

Police Officer Carlos Stuteville was shot and killed at Miami International Airport.

He and an airport security guard were escorting a mentally ill sailor to an airplane for deportation to his native Jamaica. The man began to struggle with Officer Stuteville and gained control of his .38 caliber service revolver. The man shot and killed the security guard before turning and shooting Officer Stuteville, mortally wounding him.

The suspect was found not guilty by reason of insanity for Officer Stuteville's murder and deported to Jamaica.

Rest in peace Officer Stuteville. A hero of truth and honor. The Officer Down Memorial page listed your age as ninety-six, obviously a mistake. Your badge number was that . I believe you were twenty-eight when you sacrificed your life that night at Miami International Airport. Mr. Cuff should have contemplated his heinous actions of cowardly proportions. I don't think you were thirteen when you joined the force. maybe a police explorer.
