CORSICANA TEXAS - A sheriff’s patrol unit was in front of the Navarro County Justice Center Saturday as a memorial to a veteran deputy who died in an off-duty car accident in Central Texas. Deputy James Murray died at a Corsicana hospital after he was seriously injured in the accident, which occurred at around 2:30 p.m. Friday on South U.S. Highway 287 near the Navarro-Freestone County line, a post on the sheriff’s office Facebook page said.
“Our department is in shock over Deputy Murray’s death. Our heart goes out to the family of our fallen comrade. This is another tragic blow to law enforcement and it hits close to home here in Navarro County,” the post said.
