HWY 603 dedication to Hancock County Deputy Lt. Michael Boutte

The South Mississippi community is still mourning the loss of Hancock County Deputy Lt. Michael Boutte who was shot and killed in the line of duty February 1st.

There have been many memories across the Coast allowing residents to pay their respects and honor Lt. Boutte’s life and sacrifice.

Now a permanent memorial on Highway 603 will remember him forever.

On Highway 603, north of Interstate 10 between Kiln-Delisle Road and Rocky Hill Dedeaux Road will be dedicated to the fallen deputy.

Sheriff Adam tells News 25 “this dedication is so little for someone who gave so much, Lt. Boutte is sadly missed and always in the back of my mind.”

Once the new memorial signage is complete, Hancock County Sheriff’s Office will host an official Highway dedication ceremony.
