Vernon Marconnet

June 30, 1988
On patrol near 35th Avenue and Carver Road, Deputy Marconnet stopped to investigate two suspicious vehicles. He found a father and three sons who had been drinking and arguing. Just after he called for a backup, 911 operators received a call that an officer was in trouble. Deputies arrived to find Vern dead beside his car. After Marconnet put the older man into the patrol car, one of the sons grabbed Vern’s gun. Deputy Marconnet was killed execution style with his own weapon. All four family members were tried and convicted for the murder.
