  1. That would be Sheriff Ben “Doc” Murray. I used to work for him as a part time week end dispatcher before he sponsored me to go to the Regional Law Enforcement Academy in Uvalde. He was murdered in his own home and brutally mutilated as well.

      Galeh Yuvo, Jessie. I did not know that Doc is still walking around in the court house at night. I miss him. Very good man…
