Sgt. Dietz was found dead at the San Angelo Police Station yesterday morning just before 11 a.m. His death has shocked the community as he was described as the most well know and liked police officer in the department.
His body was sent to Lubbock for autopsy yesterday. It returned this morning with members of all law enforcement agencies escorting the procession down S.
