Charles T. Randall

Wildlife Officer Charles Randall and Wildlife Officer Roy Burnsed were killed in an automobile crash when their SUV patrol vehicles collided head-on on the L-5 levee near the Holey Land Wildlife Management Area in Palm Beach County.

The officers were driving in opposite directions at approximately 9:30 p.m. on the 17-foot wide dirt road, which crossed the levee in a remote area with little light. Both officers were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. Officer Randall succumbed to his injuries two days after the accident.

He had served with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for three years. He is survived by his parents.

In January 2004, an offshore patrol boat, the C.T. Randall, was named in Officer Randall's honor.
