The cruiser entered a culvert, rolled over, and ejected Deputy Phillips. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Deputy Phillips had served with the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's Office for 19 years.

It's been almost 19 years since you left us and I still want to cry every time I think about you. I wish I could see you one more time. You were the closest thing to a daddy that I had. It takes a true man to raise someone else's baby. I'll love and miss you always.
