It was well before my time, July 29, 1939, when Cynthiana’s police chief responded to what is today considered a “domestic” situation.
The 25-year veteran police officer approached the property where a man was abusing a teenage girl. As he was getting out of his car, he was shot in the back by the man who was hiding in his barn.
Chief George Dickey died of his injuries.
He will be remembered during a police memorial service in Richmond on Tuesday, May 22.
