On August 11, 2004 Officer Trey Hutchison with our department was shot and killed. Since that date numerous officers have lost their life in the peformance of their duty. All are senseless losses. Deputy Winfield, you loss is felt, Our hearts and prayers are with your department and your family. I am ashamed at what our society has become, in that life means so little. Your tour of duty is done, rest in peace.

My sincere condolences to the friends, family, and the Marion County Sheriff's office. As I look at this web page every day and I see all the fallen hero's, it is a sad and grim reminder, just how precious life is. It reminds me of six words from the terrorist's attack that describes all of our brothers and sisters that made the ultimate sacrifice. "ALL GIVE SOME, SOME GIVE ALL!" That having been said, when something happens to one of us it effects all of us, no matter what color the uniform or the shape of our badges!

Rest in peace, my Brother.
