Deputy Dewey funeral: Law enforcement community says goodbye to partner, friend

Email

Brooklyn Park, Minn. - Chad Peterson tapped his chest, near his heart, and talked about fallen fellow Mahnomen County Sheriff's Deputy Christopher Dewey: "He will always be a hero here."

Peterson choked back tears Wednesday while remembering his partner, but Minnesotans who did not know Dewey also honored the 27-year-old who was shot on duty 18 months ago and died Aug. 9.
