One Year Anniversary Service to Celebrate Matthew Blansett

Wednesday, August 23, will be the anniversary of a dreadful day in Marion County history. The Marion County Sheriff’s Department will be celebrating Matthew Blansett with a few words, a balloon release, and a moment of silence. Join others to pay respect to Detective Blansett, who died in a helicopter crash along with THP Pilot Sgt. Lee Russell while on duty last year.

The ceremony will be held in front of the Marion County Justice Center promptly @ 2:30 pm CST.
