I clipped this article out of the LA Times when it
appeared. I was one of the units that was helping to direct the traffic and such. Jim rode with me a
couple of times when Lawton was off. I remembered him as a good young deputy that wanted to learn. Nice person. A tragic loss.
He was the second FPK deptuy that I personally knew to get killed in the line of duty. The first was Ron Ludlow. I had worked the jail with him and then FPK. Ron got killed during the 65 riots. Jack Miller took him to the hospital.
