US Marshal motorcade escort


A motorcade of law enforcement officers escorted the body of Patrick Carothers, the US Marshal, who was killed the week before Thanksgiving, through Anderson County Sunday afternoon. Carothers was killed in Georgia while trying to arrest a man wanted for trying to kill police officers. Powdersville firefighters flew the US flag from their ladder truck from atop the SC 153 bridge over I-85 as they passed under. Carothers, a twenty-six year law enforcement veteran was buried Tuesday in a Virginia town where he attended high school. (Photo by David Rogers)
