Memorial, highway honor Sgt. Brian Dulle two years after his death

LEBANON, Ohio - Two years after his death, Sgt. Brian Dulle is still being honored as Warren County officials prepare to unveil a memorial to him and a highway in his name Friday.

On May 10, 2011, Sgt. Brian Dulle was killed on Route 42 in Lebanon. Dulle was laying out stop stick to catch the driver of a stolen vehicle when the vehicle hit and killed him. Friday marks exactly two years since Dulle's death.

The driver of a stolen 2001 Cadillac, Marcus Anthony Isreal of Middletown, was convicted of murder in the case.

On Friday morning, the Sgt. Brian Dulle Memorial was dedicated in front of the Warren County Sheriff's Office located at 550 Justice Drive in Lebanon. The Dulle Memorial is in the area of the other memorials on the Warren County government campus. Dulle's children helped unveil the memorial.

Additionally, the intersection of Route 42 near Utica Road where Dulle was killed will be renamed the "Sergeant Brian Dulle Memorial Highway."  Ohio Rep. Ron Maag will announce the renaming during a ceremony Friday afternoon.

In May 2012, Dulle's name went onto the Ohio Fallen Officer's Memorial wall. He was among six officers whose named were added to the wall after they were killed in 2011.

Dulle is survived by his wife, Abby and three children.
