A Teller County sheriff's deputy killed in the line of duty 22 years ago will be honored this month and his story told on "Homicide Hunter."

Brent Andrew Holloway was shot in the head on Oct. 16, 1995. The 27-year-old deputy had been guarding the site of a suspected arson when the culprit came up behind him and killed him.

The man took Holloway's gun and used it to commit suicide two days later.

More details from that case will be featured on the hit TV series "Homicide Hunter," which will air at 8 p.m. on Nov. 1, on Investigation Discovery. The show is narrated by retired 20-year Colorado Springs police Lt. Joe Kenda.

In a news release, the Teller County Sheriff's Office encouraged the public to watch the episode "in order to honor Deputy Holloway and those that have made the ultimate sacrifice before him." It also asked viewers to "remember the danger that law enforcement officers face every day."

The sheriff's office also will hold a service for Holloway at 9 a.m. on Oct. 16 at his memorial off Hybrook Road South in Divide.
