PoliceLink Officer Down Remembers...



Sergeant Rick Riggenbach

Chitimacha Tribal Police Department, Tribal Police

Incident Details:

Cause of Death: Gunfire

Date of Incident: 01/26/13

Sergeant Rick Riggenbach was shot and killed after he and two St. Mary Parish Deputies  responded to reports of a mobile home fire and an armed subject on Flatown Road, near Charenton shortly after 9:00 am. The fire was reported just off tibal land about one quarter mile from a Chitimacha-owned Casino.


When Sergeant Riggenbach arrived at the scene, the subject shot him with a shotgun, fatally wounding him. The subject then opened fire on the two St Mary Parish Deputies as they arrived at the scene moments later. Both Deputies were critically wounded. The subject, who was also wounded at some point during the incident, was taken into custody by other responding officers and transported to a local hospital.


After the house fire was extinguished, the body of its owner was discovered in the debris. The subject who started the fire was a neighbor with a history of mental illness.

Rest in peace Sgt. Riggenbach.


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
