Fallen Officers Honored At Oneida County Court House
Utica, NY (WIBX) - This morning, law enforcement officials from different agencies gathered at the Oneida County Court House to honor three individuals killed in the line of duty. New Hartford Police Officer, Joseph Corr, Utica Police Officer, Thomas Lindsay and Oneida County Sheriff's Deputy, Kurt Wyman were honored with plaques, which were unveiled at the ceremony attended by many. Oneida County Sheriff, Robert Maciol, says the ceremony is a fitting tribute.
It is a sad day but it's also a very promising day. I mean, again this is a tribute to three fine individuals who made the ulitmate sacrafice as they did their jobs protecting the people of our communities. We will be forever grateful to them. They will never be forgotten.
He says placing the plaques in the same court house where those responsible for killing the officers were convicted and sent to jail, is a fitting tribute, and will serve as a reminder that justice was served. The dedication ceremony was organized by Oneida County Sheriff's Deputy Brian Warcup.
The Wyman family attended the ceremony to honor the memory of Deputy Kurt Wyman. His killer was recently convicted for the crime and will serve a life sentence without the possibility of parole. His death was the most recent tragedy in Oneida County involving a law enforcement official. Deputy Wyman's widow, Lauren, gave birth to their daughter Adyson Jynnette, a day after the death of her husband. They also have a son who was 18-months old at the time of Deputy Wyman's death.
