A Ramsey County sheriff's deputy who was found dead mysteriously on Monday, August 1, almost died in a fiery crash last year. The body of Dallas Edeburn, 30, was found in the area between his home and the patrol station after he failed to return home from work. The news comes more than a year after his survival from a fiery crash.

In March 2021, a stolen vehicle fleeing from Mounds View Police hit Edeburn's squad car, which made it roll five times. Fortunately, other deputies present at the spot rescued Edeburn by dragging him to safety before the car caught fire.

"He worked valiantly to rehab from his injuries and return to full-duty status," according to the sheriff's office. In addition, the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners said at that time that the eputy "likely would not have survived" if his fellow deputies had not helped him.

During his service years, Edeburn received several accolades for his brave work. Once he saved a woman who was about to jump from a freeway bridge and was celebrated for his heroic action. 

The results from a preliminary autopsy revealed no signs of trauma or injury caused to his body. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner will reveal the manner and cause of death after completing a full autopsy. Sheriff Bob Fletcher said, "Our hearts go out to Dallas' wife, family, and friends. He was larger than life, both in his physical presence and his service to Ramsey County."

During the March incident, Edeburn suffered serious injuries. Two of his ribs were fractured, a deep laceration was caused to his right elbow, his toe got dislocated, and his right knee cap shattered. The driver responsible for the accident was sentenced in December 2021. The deputy also appeared in court while walking with a cane. In his victim impact statement, he stated that he was recently married when the crash happened. He said, "The defendant took away any possibility of having a honeymoon in a timely fashion. Instead, the honeymoon was held with a stay at Regions Hospital …Our marriage began with the ‘in sickness and health’ phase."

Deputy Edeburn served the citizens of Ramsey County for seven years with dedication. He joined as a Correctional Officer in July 2015 at the Ramsey County Correctional Home. He was also a respected member of the SWAT team. The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office broke the news on Facebook and shared pictures of the deputy. "His commitment to his family, his partners, and the citizens of Ramsey County will never be forgotten," said the sheriff's office in a press release.
