On the Fillmore County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, I found a heartfelt thank you and podcast about Sheriff's Deputy Walter Kruegel, killed in the line of duty in 1954. It's an incredibly well done production and well told story.
He was a well-respected and well liked Deputy in the community. On a cold evening in November, he picked up a local farmer on a warrant for threats made to another local family. He and the suspect had been friends for years, but this night would be Deputy Kruegel's last night on the job after a struggle with a handgun that proved fatal. (Officer Down Memorial Podcast)
I want to give sincere thanks to the Fillmore County Historical Society for providing excellent historical information, and pictures to make this possible. I also want to thank Sheriff Scott Rose and the Officer Down Memorial podcast for doing such a wonderful job crafting this episode, and honoring Deputy Kruegel by telling his story.
Please consider taking a few minutes and giving this podcast a listen. You will be entertained, and moved as you hear the story of a true hero and FCSO legend who sacrificed everything for the community he swore to protect.
Sheriff John DeGeorge
