Fallen Heroes Details



In Memory Of
Gerald Barnes
Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, AZ
End of watch: 1957-10-05
Aircraft: Tri-Pacer
Deputy Gerald Barnes drowned while pinned in the wreckage of the Sheriff's four passenger Tri-Pacer after it crashed into the Arizona Canal seven miles northeast of Scottsdale. Barnes and Deputy Frank Grove were serving as observers while Sergeant Paul Mullenix piloted the plane in a search of a stolen truck and a car used in a holdup. When the low flying plane stalled, it's landing gear hit a power line and toppled the plane into a four foot deep canal. Witnesses irrigating a nearby field helped rescue the pilot and the Deputy in the front seat, but Deputy Barnes was trapped in a rear seat, and they were unable to reach him in time.
