Patrolman Theodore Husting
End of Watch: March 27, 1937
Patrolman Theodore Husting was shot and killed when he discovered a burglary in progress. He was walking his nightly rounds when he observed a man inside a tavern at North 12th Street and Lincoln Avenue. As he looked inside a window the suspect shot him with a .45 caliber handgun he had found inside. Patrolman Husting had been with the agency for six years and was survived by his wife.
Charles Freiherr was a painter in Sheboygan and also employed as a “special officer,” to cover regular patrol shifts when officers were on vacation or were out sick. On September 6th, Freiherr was assigned to watch the Ashland Ave Depot in the City of Sheboygan on September 6, 1895. During Officer Freiherr’s shift, witnesses believed Officer Freiherr was looking for people hopping onto railcars without tickets. Another witness thought Officer Freiherr was pursuing someone on foot. A switch engine at the train depot was pushing four box cars north on track number two from the platform. Officer Freiherr stepped between two of the rail cars. A switchman standing on one of the railcars shouted and warned Officer Freiherr of the danger. Officer Freiherr, unfortunately, was struck in the head by one of the railcars and ran over by three railcars.
