Sgt Richard Eric Weinhold
Birth: Jan. 23, 1956, USA
Death: Oct. 31, 2000
Missouri, USA

Sergeant Richard Weinhold was shot on October 31,2000 at approximately 1:47 pm after responding to a disturbance in the 1900 block of Chambers Road.

Sergeant Weinhold and several officers had responded to the residence after the owner of the home called to complain about a roommate, who was living there against his will and had stolen his shotgun.

After receiving no response from inside, the officers broke into the basement with the owner's permission and searched it. The officers began to climb the stairs to the first floor, with Sergeant Weinhold in the lead, when the suspect appeared at the top and fired at them. Sergeant Weinhold was struck in the shoulder in an opening where his vest did not cover.

The officers returned fire but did not strike the suspect. Sergeant Weinhold was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries later in the afternoon.

He was a twenty year veteran of the Department. He served in the Division of Patrol, Division of Criminal Investigation and Division of Operational Support.

In 1999, he was named Missouri's Law Enforcement Instructor of the Year.

He is survived by his wife and four young children.

Sad that the story copied to Rick's memorial does not state what really happened the day he was shot and killed. There are more details to that fateful day but for whatever reason were not publicly disclosed. I knew Rick and I know of the details - I will...(Read more)
