Carbon County law enforcement officers on Tuesday afternoon will pay tribute to one of their own who was beaten to death in the line of duty more than a century ago.

The Utah Law Enforcement Memorial will hold a brief ceremony at the Scofield Cemetery in Carbon County at noon to place a grave marker on Scofield Officer Thomas Nalley's grave.

Nalley suffered fatal injuries while responding to a disturbance call Oct. 5, 1902. He was badly beaten by a suspect and died Oct. 14 from his injuries. The suspect involved in the beating was shot and killed by officers.

Nalley's grave has been unmarked for 111 years.

The Utah Law Enforcement Memorial locates and marks other forgotten graves involving Utah's 136 fallen police officers.
