Hundreds of law enforcement officers, first responders, family members and friends gathered at the Church at Osage Hills to remember a Miller County Deputy killed in the line of duty. Lake Ozark Police Corporal Brian Jarrett presided over the ceremonies for 26-year old Casey Shoemate.
The ceremony was somber but also included stories about Casey’s life and sense of humor. Shoemate was killed last week in a traffic accident while responding to an emergency call. 65-year old Robert Levin of Florissant was seriously injured in the collision.
