Captain Jackey Long died in early July shortly after being diagnosed with cancer. Corporal Keith Slay died in a late July car crash while he was on duty. Capt. Vince Pasko was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his house about two weeks ago. Chief of the 488-person department, Ricky Boren, told the Ledger-Enquirer of Columbus ( he's never seen so many casualties within the department in such a short time span.
