McKinlay requests renaming to honor deputies

PAHOKEE — District 6 Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay has requested that county staff prepare a resolution to rename a section of State Road 715 near the Palm Beach County Glades Airport in Pahokee in memory of Deputy Sheriff Jonathan Wallace and Deputy Sheriff Donta J. Manuel. They were killed in the line of duty during the night of Nov. 28, 2007, when they were struck and killed by a patrol car in that area while attempting to remove stop sticks from the road during a police chase. The resolution will be considered by the Palm Beach County Board of Commissioners at an upcoming meeting.
