GREENE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- People in Albemarle County may have seen a special escort involving a lot of police vehicles and even a local fire truck.

The Albemarle County Police Department escorted the body of Greene County Investigator Lonnie Tuthill to Ruckersville on Wednesday morning.

He passed away Saturday at the age of 58.

Tuthill was a forensic investigator who had also worked for ACPD for 25 years before joining the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.

Greene Sheriff Steve Smith says Tuthill serviced his community with pride and passion.

“He has been an instrumental part of our office and it will be a struggle to fill his shoes,” said Smith.

Tuthill is being laid to rest in Ruckersville.

Donations to help his family are being accepted at the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. If writing a check, it should be made payable to Toni Tuthill.
