Darren Doyle, story:
Two Edmonson County Deputies killed in the line of duty were honored today at the conclusion of National Police Week, with the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office placing memorial wreaths at each deputy's grave.
Sheriff Shane Doyle said his office is proud to honor the county’s fallen deputies while remembering fallen officers all across America.
Nathaniel “Nathan” Payton Merideth was a county deputy sheriff shot and killed responding to a domestic disturbance with a listed EOW (End of Watch) recorded July 19th, 1925.
Eric Shane Stafford was a county deputy sheriff killed in a traffic collision on I-65 with a listed EOW recorded on June 26th, 1996.
“Placing these wreaths on the graves of our fallen deputies is a very sobering experience," said Sheriff Doyle. "It’s the least I can do to honor the sacrifices of these fine people."
