Memorial Remembrance - Wyckoff: January 21st

  

On December 2nd, 2016 the King County Sheriff’s Office unveiled a memorial honoring the 18 members of our department who lost their lives in the line of duty since the founding of the KCSO in 1853. 

 

Today, on the anniversary of the passing of Sheriff Louis V. Wyckoff, we want to take a moment and honor his memory.

On Friday, January 20, 1882, King County Sheriff Louis Wyckoff and his deputies were guarding the county jail from an angry lynch mob of about 200-300 men who were attempting to invade it.  The mob was demanding that two men who were responsible for a fatal robbery attempt from the day before be executed.  After failing to stop the mob, the men removed the two suspects and they were hanged from Henry Yesler’s maple trees. 

 

Later, the mob returned and removed the accused murderer of Seattle Police Officer David Sires.  They also took him to Yesler’s maple tree and he was hanged.  The next morning, Sheriff Wyckoff suffered a heart attack and died. 

 

Sheriff Louis Wyckoff was 52. He had served as the King County Sheriff for nineteen years and was survived by his wife and son.

 

Be well.  Stay safe -

 

Sheriff Mitzi G.  Johanknecht
