Description: Deputy Seton was working an off duty job when he heard a fellow deputy radio for assistance to stop five shooting suspects. The suspects exited their vehicle and ran into a heavily wooded, swampy area. Deputy Seton responded to the scene and gave chase into the dark, heavily wooded and marshy area. He became stuck in the thick underbrush and mud and was unable to extricate himself. Deputy Seton radioed for assistance from the agency's helicopter assisting in the suspect search. While being lifted out of the area, Deputy Seton fell from the helicopter and died from his injuries.
