A local icon is no longer with us. Sheriff Keith Cain announced today that former Daviess County Sheriff Charles "Boots" Norris has passed away.

Sheriff Cain posted this on the Daviess County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page on Thursday:

Sheriff Norris was a good man who I met through my dad who, I think, knew every law enforcement officer who ever served in Owensboro and Daviess County in his lifetime.

We join Sheriff Cain and the rest of the Daviess County Sheriff's Office in mourning the loss of a truly great man.
