Sacramento County Sheriff's Helicopter Crash Memorial

On July 13, 2005
Sheriff's Helicopter Star VI
was patrolling the skies,
when a catastrophic engine failure
brought the ship to its final resting place
on the north shore of Lake Natoma.

This monument serves as
a memorial to deputies
Joseph Kievernagel
Kevin Blount
who tragically lost their lives
in the crash,
as well as to the suffering of
Eric Henrikson
who was critically injured.
Their dedication to service and extreme sacrifice
will never be forgotten.
They truly are our "Heroes in the Sky".
