Minnesota loses two more conservation officers to untimely death


Two tribal conservation officers from northern Minnesota have died this summer in separate incidents, adding to a spate of tragedy among game wardens that started with four unrelated deaths of officers at the Department of Natural Resources.

Red Lake Nation Conservation Officer Shannon Lee “Opie” Barron, 48, died July 7 of a heart attack after answering a poaching call at the end of his work shift. Eight days earlier, White Earth Conservation Officer Richard Ervin Fox Jr., 54, died in an off-duty motorcycle crash in Idaho while touring with his brother, Robert.
