Frank Dulin

Deputy Sheriff Frank Dulin was shot and killed after arrest a man who had shot his father-in-law the previous week. Deputy Dulin went to the man's home and arrested the man. The man's brother accompanied them as they began to walk away from the home. The brother then grabbed Deputy Dulin, allowing the suspect to escape.

The man ran into the house and grabbed his father's shotgun. When Deputy Dulin was able to break free from the brother he approached the front door of the house, expecting the suspect to come out. As the suspect came out he fired the shotgun, striking Deputy Dulin in the abdomen.

The two brothers then fled the scene but were arrested later. On February 9, 1934, one was sentenced to life in prison after he convinced his 15-year-old son to kill his parents.

Deputy Dulin was survived by his wife and daughter.
