Goelet Alessandro Carlo Beuf

Officer Beuf was killed when both he and a suspect were struck by a tractor-trailer while struggling on the side of a roadway at N. 24th Avenue and W. Lone Cactus Drive. Officer Beuf had responded to a call and was approaching a man when the man began to run. Officer Beuf chased the suspect and caught him on the side of a roadway. As the two struggled, they fell into the path of a slow-moving tractor-trailer.

The truck stopped, but Officer Beuf and the suspect were entangled in the front axle. Officer Beuf was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The suspect was critically injured in the accident. When he recovered he was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay $9,000 in restitution for the death of Officer Beuf.

Officer Beuf, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, had been with the agency for one year and is survived by his wife and four children.

For some reason i always find myself here in the month of May every year. my 24th birthday is coming up next week and it’s on Memorial Day this year. i so badly wish you could be here... i can’t believe it will be 21 years in November. i’m due to have another son in August and again we are definitely hoping he looks like you haha. Celeste asked to go visit you today so my husband Justin drove us down to the cemetery and Baby and i sat there and talked to you for a little bit. she always has a lot to say to you every time we visit. she told me today that she hopes she will get to meet you when we are all together in Heaven... i wish you could’ve met her although i know you’re always watching over us even now. i love you Papa.
