Interim Mingo County Sheriff Resigns

The wife of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum took over as interim sheriff when her husband was killed earlier this year, and now she has resigned. In a letter to county commissioners she said she had mixed emotions about stepping down after four months. She said it's a big undertaking, and the sheriff's office needs a qualified person who can dedicate the time and attention it deserves. Crum recommended that Dave Rockel serve as sheriff, who was Sheriff Dugene Crum's task force commander and chief field deputy. Rosie Crum's resignation is effective September 4th
