Brian Michael DiBucci

Police Officer Brian DiBucci was killed after he fell approximately 100 feet from a highway overpass during a foot chase of a suspect.

Other officers were initially involved in a vehicle pursuit of a stolen car, but the suspect vehicle crashed at the end of the overpass and the suspect fled on foot.

Officer DiBucci was acting as backup and was approaching the scene as the other officers were taking the suspect into custody. Other officers noticed he had fallen when they spotted his car on an adjoining overpass and radioed to him. After Officer DiBucci did not return the radio calls, other officers went to investigate and determined he had fallen.

Officer DiBucci had served with the Everett Police Department for 1-1/2 years and had served in law enforcement for a total of four years. He his survived by his fiancée.

Twenty years. Twenty!

My dearest Brian Michael - Such a tremendously touching tribute to you today - orchestrated by some who knew you - facilitated by some who did not - received by countless who undoubtedly wish they had. You are well remembered and your legacy will continue on in the hearts and minds of a new generation.

As always, I find great peace and joy in seeing your smile, mischief and heart continue to bless the lives of those who knew and loved you - and that your legacy is an inspiration to those who follow in your footsteps.

You're one in a kabajillion (it's a word, honest...) and you will always be remembered and loved. My heart is with you and so many who loved you - hoping they all are also reminiscing and basking in the comfort of many memories of their own.

You're still a Punkinhead - and I'm grateful to have loved and been loved by you.
