Posted on January 5, 2010 by ULEM Administrator

On January 5, 2010 a Millard County Sheriff Deputy stopped a vehicle approximately one mile east of Delta on SR50 at 1 AM at the request of another Deputy. The requesting Deputy was watching two suspicious vehicles in an area where we have had recent thefts. The requesting Deputy watched a vehicle leave and requested the Victim Deputy to make a traffic stop and identify the occupants of the vehicle. When the requesting Deputy arrived he found the Victim Deputy had been fatally shot. This case is still under investigation. The suspect is still at large and is identified as Roberto Miramontes Roman. He is a 37 year old Hispanic male, 5’07’, 130 lbs., brown hair and brown eyes. The vehicles this suspect may be in are a 1995 Cadillac Deville gray in color with Utah plate 713PAB, an orange colored Chevrolet Corvette or a maroon colored mid-sized SUV. If this suspect or any of his vehicles are located please contact the Millard County Sheriff’s Office at 435-743-5302 or your local police agency. The Millard County Sheriff’s Office is being assisted in the investigation by all the surrounding sheriff*s offices, Utah County Sheriff’s Office, the UHP, and other Law Enforcement Agencies. Information will be released as it becomes available. The below photo is of the suspect and was taken in 1997.

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds and shall find me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Ernest Henley, Poet

    Keep the Faith and God Bless…
