Missing Man Found in Albany County 

News Release

On 13 September 2016, the Albany County Sheriff’s Office located the body of Jerome “Jerry” Elmore in the Snowy Range west of Laramie. A search and rescue mission had been planned to take place in the area where Elmore’s rental vehicle had been located. Before the search got underway, the Laramie Area Records and Communications received a 911 call from a hunter who reported finding a dead body in the area of the primary search area.

Deputies of the Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and found Elmore deceased in the National Forest several hundred yards from his vehicle. The County Coroner’s Office also responded and conducted their own investigation.

In spite of requests from the media and posts on social media sites for updated information, the Sheriff’s Office was unable to provide any updated information until they were certain the next of kin had been notified.

Undersheriff Rob Debree 

Undersheriff Robert J DebreeRob DeBree, 58, passed away on September 2, 2016. At the time of his passing, he was enjoying two of his most cherished activities: spending time with his son, and hunting.

Rob was born July 19, 1958 to Shirley and James DeBree, in Port Huron, Michigan.  Following a move which would later take the family to Montana, he attended several schools and graduated as an accomplished athlete from Bozeman High School in 1976. Rob excelled in both baseball and football.  Rob would attend Montana State University, where after a year as a student-athlete playing football, he enlisted in the United States Air Force.

Upon completion of his military service, DeBree would marry Alyn Hayes in 1980, though they would later divorce in 1986. Rob welcomed the adoption of his daughter Danae Horst, in 1980, and celebrated the birth of his son, Josh, two years later.

Rob began a highly successful career in law enforcement and ultimately became a highly decorated and respected 34-year career.  Rob joined the Douglas County (Colorado) Sheriff’s Office in 1980.  DeBree’s dedication and work ethic would promote his noteworthy rise to the rank of Corporal within the same year. Following three years of service, Rob moved to Laramie, Wyoming to fulfill goals of being closer to family, as well as the opportunity to serve with the Albany County Sheriff’s where Rob was employed until the time of his death.

Reflected in numerous professions and professional awards, undoubtedly DeBree’s greatest source of pride would come in 1987 upon meeting his best friend and future wife, Susan (Dalles) DeBree. Married in July of the following year, the couple will continue to be remembered for their strong sense of family and generous support of Albany County youth, especially within the community of 4-H.

While Rob’s sense of dedication and determination will be remembered by all who knew him, his unshakeable commitment to service and law enforcement will forever define his greatest achievements and personal aspirations.  Reflected in numerous hard-earned promotions, including Deputy, Detective Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Detective Lieutenant, DeBree’s highest rank would come in his most recent post as Albany County Undersheriff, a position he thoroughly enjoyed while serving with Sheriff Dave O’Malley
