WOODSTOCK – Those wanting to pay respects to McHenry County Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Maness, who died Monday, can do so Saturday during a public walk-through and funeral.

In conjunction with Maness' family, the sheriff's office on Wednesday announced a police funeral will take place for the fallen officer at Woodstock North High School, 3000 Raffel Road, Woodstock.

The public will be allowed to walk through from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with a walk-through for law enforcement and public servants set for 1 p.m., according to the sheriff's office.

A funeral service and procession will follow.

"This will provide an opportunity for the community at large, as well as law enforcement to pay a fitting tribute to our fallen hero," McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim said.

More information regarding parking, shuttles, maps, procession route and other arrangements will be forthcoming and posted on the sheriff's office website, www.mchenrysheriff.org, as well as the Facebook page: McHenry County Sheriff's Office.

Maness, of McHenry, died Monday from blood clots in his lungs, according to a ruling from McHenry County Coroner Anne Majewski. His death came about 11 months after he was shot in the line of duty after responding to a well being check at a Holiday Hills home.

The sheriff's office has since requested that the McHenry County Major Investigation Assistance Team conduct an investigation into Maness' death.

McHenry County State's Attorney Lou Bianchi has said if the coroner determines that his death was a result of the injuries he suffered in the Oct. 16 shooting, the man who shot him could face murder charges.
