County: Snohomish County
Officer DiBucci was killed after he fell approximately 100 feet from a highway overpass during a foot chase of a suspect. The officers were initially involved in a vehicle pursuit of a stolen car, but the suspect vehicle crashed at the end of the overpass and the suspect fled on foot. Officer DiBucci was acting as backup and was approaching the scene as the other officers were taking the suspect into custody. Other officers noticed he had fallen when they spotted his car on an adjoining overpass and radioed to him. After Officer DiBucci did not return the radio calls, other officers went to investigate and determined he had fallen. He had served with the Everett Police Department for one and a half years and had been in law enforcement for a total of four years. He is survived by his fiancée.
