A former St. Tammany Parish, LA, Sheriff’s deputy has died more than a decade after a freak accident that killed her fiance' and left her paralyzed.
The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office announced the death of Mary Mayo on Friday, attributing her death to long-standing medical complications caused by the accident, WBRZ reports.
Mayo was paralyzed in June 2007 when a tree fell on the patrol car she was riding in during a funeral procession for another deputy. Her fiance', Sgt. Linden "Beau" Raimer, was driving the car and died in the accident.
