Death: Jan. 8, 2002
Muskingum County
Ohio, USA

Deputy Tanner was shot and killed after being flagged down in a residential area in Zanesville, Ohio. He was on patrol when he radioed dispatch that he was being flagged down and gave them a license plate number to check. There was no additional radio contact and Deputy Tanner's body, with a gunshot wound, was found next to his vehicle by a citizen. His service weapon was still in its holster. Three suspects were apprehended later in the evening during a massive search after other officers located the car with the license plate Deputy Tanner had called. The three suspects fled the scene but were all apprehended in a wooded area.

Deputy Tanner had been with the agency for eight years and is survived by his wife,Jennifer.
