Officer Timothy Wayne "Tim" Whittington

While on patrol on July 16, 1985, Officer Tim Whittington and a fellow officer responded to a first degree burglary call at 1009 Tennyson Drive. The subject had robbed an elderly couple and stabbed the elderly man in the chest, arm, and hand, taking a pistol from the home as he fled.
When Officer Whittington stopped to question a man who matched the suspect's description, the man pulled a gun and killed Officer Whittington. Officer Whittington was 26 years old.
