Travis Haynes

Special Deputy Haynes succumbed to a gunshot wound received 12 years earlier after going to a ranch to help two motorists. Special Deputy Haynes was working in his store when the rancher called him to tell him of the motorists. When Deputy Haynes arrived he and the two motorists left in his car. After he failed to return his wife called the sheriff and a search was undertaken. He was found with a gunshot wound to the head. The two suspects turned out to be escapees from the Kansas State Prison. Both were apprehended after a vehicle pursuit and convicted of shooting Deputy Haynes.
Deputy Haynes never recovered from his wound and died in Abilene, Texas. He had served as a Special Deputy for 25 years at the time of the shooting.
