BURNEY – On October 21, 1991, Twenty-one years ago Burney Patrol Deputy Ken Perrigo was killed in the line of duty.
After a five day man hunt by hundreds of officers, the two suspects were located and arrested.
They were later convicted of his murder. Ken served his country in the U.S. Coast Guard and the citizens of Shasta County as a Sheriff ’s Deputy. He was assigned to the Sheriff ’s Burney Station.
Through the efforts of Sheriff ’s personnel, Senator Doug LaMalfa, and generous donations, the bridge onMain St Burney will be dedicated in his memory next May as part of Peace Officers Memorial Week. We will never forget.
“In honor of Deputy Perrigo’s service and sacrifice it is a fitting tribute that the Burney Creek Bridge on Main Street in Burney, be designated as the Deputy Kenneth Fredrick Perrigo Memorial Bridge.” Sheriff Tom Bosenko says.
