KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A Knox County Sheriff’s Office officer has been placed on three days’ leave for leaving an evidence log at a scene.
According to the Sheriff’s Officer, Deputy Aaron Wyckoff left the log on June 3 at New Hopewell Baptist Church on Kimberlin Heights Road in South Knoxville. In a letter, Chief Deputy Bernie Lyon tells Wyckoff that he violated multiple department policies.
