Sheriff’s chief deputy retires

Longtime detective also leaves post

Express Staff Writer

Top: Corey Weatherly Bottom: Ed Fuller

    After 29 years of service, the last three as the No. 2 man in the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office, Chief Deputy Ed Fuller has retired.
    Sheriff Gene Ramsey said Monday that Fuller’s retirement became effective that day. Fuller could not be reached for comment, but Ramsey said Fuller left his position to “finish some of the projects he’s started.”
    Ramsey said he has not yet appointed a new chief deputy, but would prefer for the job someone with extensive experience and knowledge, such as Fuller had.
    “You have to have a lot of individual knowledge,” said Ramsey, who served as chief deputy for 33 years before being appointed sheriff in 2011. “I’ve got three people who are interviewing for the job.”
    Also on Monday, Ramsey confirmed that former sheriff’s Detective Corey Weatherly retired for medical reasons on March 11.
    Weatherly, who also served on the Blaine County Narcotics Enforcement Team, had continued to work for the Sheriff’s Office but did not fully recover from an injury sustained in 2012.
    That injury occurred early on July 15, 2012, when Weatherly suffered a broken neck when a man fell on him from a building roof in downtown Ketchum during a street party that was part of that year’s MASSV weekend music festival.
