Arthur Redelfs


Rank: Detention Officer
Department: El Paso County Sheriff's Office
Institution: El Paso County Sheriff's Office , TX
EOW: 03/13/2010

Detention Officer Arthur Redelfs, his pregnant wife Lesley (a U.S. Consulate worker) and their 7-month old daughter were leaving a child's birthday party when they were ambushed by several gunmen. The gunmen opened fire, killing Officer Redelfs, his wife and their unborn child. Their 7-month old daughter was found wailing in the back seat of their car. It is believed that Officer Redelfs was the target of an assassination placed on him by the Aztecas gang due to issues they had regarding many of the gang members who were swerving time in the jail. Officer Redelfs was a 10 year veteran of the El Paso County Sheriff's Office. Officer Redelfs is survived by his daughter Rebecca, mother and stepfather Mathilde and Robert Cason, brothers Reuben and Paul and sisters Katrina and Sugar.
