(WIBW) -- A Sac and Fox officer was found dead in his patrol vehicle early Wednesday morning, according to the Brown Co. Sheriff's Office. He was identified as Kirby Robidoux, of Falls City, Nebraska.

"Kirby was a very dedicated officer who always had a kind word for everyone he met," Sheriff John Merchant.

Officials say a dispatcher grew worried shortly when Robidoux, 49, did not respond to a radio check and reached out to the Iowa Tribal Police Dept. They reportedly found the officer along 330th Road, in the northern part of the county.

Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents responded to the scene after they were notified of the officer's death and asked to join the investigation.

His cause of death has not been determined and an autopsy has been schedule, Merchant said.

The Brown Co. Sheriff's Dept. said their sympathies go out to the family, his department, and the community he serves.
