Melvin Hayzlett, former sheriff of Holt County, Missouri passed away this last Tuesday, September 22, 2015. I had the privilege of sitting down with Melvin, his wife, and his daughter, to talk about his life and his career in law enforcement.
He will be missed by all who knew him. He spent many years serving Holt County in the role of sheriff.
