After a brief standoff, the suspect surrendered. Detective White died three days later. The suspect was charged as an adult. Pleading guilty to first-degree murder, he was sentenced to life in prison. Paroled in 1976, he was shot by a Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office deputy during an armed robbery the following year. Permanently paralyzed, he died eight years later in a convalescent home. Detective White was married and the father of seven children. He is buried in Ogden City Cemetery.
