The Evansville Police Department is mourning the loss of a fellow officer.

EPD said Monday that it had added three new officers to its ranks, but that it "should have added four."

"Today the Evansville Police Department added three sworn officers to its ranks. We should have added four, but unfortunately, we lost one officer to heaven," EPD said Monday.

According to EPD, Officer Marlin suddenly passed away at the age of 34 on Friday, Oct. 16 - three days before he would have been sworn-in to the EPD's ranks.

Marlin's funeral was held on Monday, which would have been his hire date. He leaves behind his wife, three daughters, and son. 

EPD said that on behalf of the department and the citizens of Evansville, EPD Chief Billy Bolin presented Zack's family with all of his badges.

"No one in the Evansville Police Department from this day until the end of time will ever wear badge 1510," EPD said. "That belongs to you, Zack."

Marlin was a federal parole officer who graduated from Eastern Kentucky University.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
