Guns & Hoses Benevolence Fund Opens For Fallen Abilene Detective Elise Ybarra

(Tuesday-August 8, 2017) "On August 6, 2017 at approximately 6:15 pm, Detectives Elise Ybarra, Chris Milliorn, and Robert Collins were enroute to the Crimes Against Children Conference in Dallas. As they approached Mile Marker 296 east bound on Interstate 20, they encountered traffic moving at a slow pace, as there had been a vehicle crash ahead. 

Detective Ybarra, who was driving an unmarked detective’s vehicle, entered a line of slow moving traffic. A short time later, an eastbound white Chevrolet Pickup came upon the line of traffic that was slowed and collided with the Detectives’ vehicle. Sadly Detective Elise Ybarra, age 32, sustained fatal injuries in the crash and died at the scene."
