Constable Richard Eric Nystedt
Constable Nystedt was stationed in Minden at the time of his death. He was on patrol with his partner, Senior Constable Mike Landry. They were answering a second call to a domestic assault. The assailant disappeared into the woods where the officers gave chase. The officers were searching a location when the suspect came up behind them with a knife and stabbed Constable Nystedt in the left leg. The knife severed the left femoral artery and Constable Nystedt bled to death before reaching help.
