Officer Marshall died shortly after his police motorcycle was struck by a drunk driver. He was on patrol shortly after midnight when the other car veered into his lane and struck him head-on. His injuries were initially believed to a severely fractured leg but he died later in the morning due to undetected internal injuries. The 19-year-old driver who struck him was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 90 days in jail.
Officer Marshall had been with the agency for four years and was survived by his expectant wife, 10-year-old son, and 9-year-old daughter.
