A story was ran in the sunjournal in 2009 but because they changed their data base I can not link the story on here or get it online. If you want the story, you will have to contact the sunjournal at; (207) 784-5411. The name of the story was: Scout hopes to improve memorial.
Timothy Willard was only 22 years old. He was a probationary officer with the Paris Police Department in December 1978. He was investigating a suspicious individual outside a factory during working hours. Turns out the guy was a distraught husband armed with a loaded handgun looking to kill his wife who worked there. When Tim confronted him, the guy shot and killed Tim instead, and the guy was in turn killed by the owner of the factory. Timothy's bravery undoubtedly saved the life of that woman.
