Brian Michael DiBucci

Police Officer Brian DiBucci was killed after he fell approximately 100 feet from a highway overpass following a vehicle pursuit of a suspect.

Other officers were initially involved in the vehicle pursuit of a stolen car, but the suspect vehicle crashed at the east end of the Hewitt Avenue Trestle.

Officer DiBucci was acting as backup and was approaching the scene as the other officers were taking the man 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 discovered he had fallen.

The driver who had fled was charged with second-degree murder, eluding police, and possession of stolen property.

Officer DiBucci had served with the Everett Police Department for 1-1/2 years and had previously served with the Tenino Police Department for 2-1/2 years. He is survived by his fiancée.

It has been such a long time, but I still remember you…and unfortunately that night. Way too soon my brother.
Now I work in Lake Stevens, so I drive by the trestle a few times a week…I see your spot. I wish we could pint your picture there.
Some days are harder than others and now I trying to get around to finally talking .
