Man Police Say Shot And Killed Smith County Constable Is Dead

We still do not know a lot about the man who police say killed Constable Dale Geddie and shot Deputy Daniel Leon.   We do know that after nearly a three hour stand off police shot and killed 52 year old Joseph Earl Walsh when he came out of the house and threatened officer. Police still don't know if Walsh died at the scene or at the hospital. Walsh was transported to a local hospital and later pronounced dead.   What little we do know about Walsh came from his tearful step son.  

"I talked to my mother earlier and things happened at home, and there was a disturbance and police man showed up and my sister was at home," said Shawn Walker. Walker says he's sorry for the officer's families and that his step father was a good man, but he had problems. He would not elaborate on what those problems were.
