In a stunning turn of events in Northern California, a deputy of the sheriff was discovered deceased at his residence, while authorities took his beloved into custody, as reported by the official authorities. The local sheriff’s office divulged on Friday that Edward Patrick Davis has been taken into protective custody following the tragic incident surrounding the untimely demise of Dana Esmael, a deputy sheriff from Del Norte County.
The lifeless body of Ismail was found at his residence on North Bank Road on Thursday morning. Sheriff Garrett Scott of the Wild Rivers Outpost informed his staff that he had visited Ismail’s house after failing to reach him for work and receiving no response on his phone.
According to the sheriff’s office, this discovery prompted an investigation into Davis, who had legally changed his name from Daniel James Walter back in July. He was apprehended in a neighboring county in Oregon, a few hours away from Del Norte County.
Sheriff Scott expressed his condolences over the loss. In a statement, he said, ‘The passing of Deputy Ismail has deeply saddened us all. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and colleagues.’
Wild Rivers Dispatch reported that Ismail had joined the sheriff’s office in March 2021.
