Summary: Officer William Copeland was killed after being assaulted by a jail trusty who was on work release.

Officer Copeland was in uniform walking to work at 1900 hours when he spotted the trusty standing on the corner. With the knowledge that trusties had to be back to the jail by 1800 hours, he began to question the man. The suspect had a special permit to be out until 2200 hours, however, during the questioning the man hit Officer Copeland in the head with a blunt object and fled the scene. Officer Copeland was found about two hours later and taken to a local drug store where he succumbed to his injuries shortly after midnight.
