Visitation, funeral arrangements for slain Marion County deputy

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Further visitation and the funeral are set Saturday for a Marion County sheriff's deputy who was killed in the line of duty earlier this week.

Deputy Anthony Rakes died Nov. 14 after he was shot while checking on a vehicle that was stopped in the middle of U.S. 68 near Lebanon.

Police say 49-year-old DeWayne Shipp of McDaniel, Ky. shot Rakes as he approached his vehicle around 2 a.m. Rakes was taken to Springview Hospital where he later died.

Jimmy Clements, Marion County Sheriff, said Friday, "This has rocked this community.  This is a small community.  And most everybody knows everybody in this community.  And we found out that everybody knew Anthony."

His sister Anita Elder said, "He got to live his dream of what he wanted to be.  When he was a little boy he wanted to be a cop.  He got to live part of that dream.  He was a deputy sheriff, and I'm proud of him."

Officers from around the state lined up outside the funeral home to escort their fallen comrade inside.

Visitation for Rake began at 5 p.m. Friday at Bosley Funeral Home in Lebanon. A second visitation was set for 11 a.m. Saturday at Marion County High School, followed by funeral services at 1 p.m.
