VINTON — The Benton County sheriff killed in the line of duty nearly 80 years ago is being memorialized.

A bust of Benton County Sheriff Leland Fry was unveiled Tuesday at the courthouse in Vinton. The bust will be displayed inside the building until May and then be moved to a pedestal on the lawn outside. Fry lost his life in 1938 trying to arrest someone who escaped from custody.
