Larry Dever, the four-term Republican sheriff of Cochise County, has died in a one-vehicle crash near the northern Arizona town of Williams. He was 60.
Dever’s death was confirmed early Wednesday by the sheriff’s department. The department declined to release details of the crash or his death.
Sheriff Dever made Arizona and the rest of the country aware of the extent of the crime problem associated with human trafficking in our state.
He will be missed greatly.
