A Ramsey County deputy was found mysteriously dead in his patrol car on Monday, one year after he escaped death following a fiery crash.
It remains unclear how 30-year-old Dallas Edeburn died on his way home after a shift at the Ramsey County Patrol station.
Authorities said that he had no visible injuries and that foul play was not suspected in his death. An autopsy was scheduled by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner.
“Our hearts go out to Dallas’ wife, family, and friends,” Sheriff Bob Fletcher said. “He was larger than life, both in his physical presence and his service to Ramsey County.”
Edeburn was the father of an infant son. His colleagues said that he “worked valiantly to rehab from his injuries and return to full-duty status.”
“He has received numerous accolades for his tremendous police work, heroic efforts during SWAT operations, and his work to rescue a suicidal young woman who was going to jump from a freeway bridge,” the sheriff’s office said.
