Brunswick County Sheriff's Office mourns loss of one of its own


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Brunswick County Sheriff's Detective Kyle Jones, age 41, passed away unexpectedly at his home Monday.

According to Captain Highsmith, no foul play is suspected.

Detective Jones was a 19 year veteran of law enforcement. He served the citizens of Columbus County from 1994 until 2000, and served the citizens of Brunswick from 2000 until his death.

The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office posted on Facebook Monday that it is mourning the death of one of its detectives, Kyle Jones.

"The BCSO has lost a friend and coworker tonight and ask that you keep the Jones family and this office in your prayers," the post reads.

Another post was added to the page just before midnight, with a picture of Det. Jones, reading, "Detective Kyle Jones, Brunswick County Sheriff's Office; at rest 14 January 2013," with a caption that says "God's Speed."

Jones was among the dozen candidates the Brunswick County Democratic Party considered to serve as sheriff after Ron Hewett resigned in 2008. At the time, Jones was a member of the Sheriff's Office's Drug Enforcement Unit.
