MALIBU—The city of Malibu is mourning the loss of Reserve Deputy Jacob Castroll of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station’s Search and Rescue Team who died on August 11. Castroll died while competing in the World Police and Fire Games that were being hosted in Castaic.
According to a news release from the city of Malibu website, he was transported to Henry Mayo Hospital in Santa Clarita, but later passed away. Deputy Castroll was a reserve deputy who worked out of the Malibu/Lost Hills Station since July 2010 on a variety of assignments. He rode his bike every year during the Memorial Torch Relay Run, and took the torch from West Hollywood deputies each year when it was passed off to the Malibu Lost Hills Station’s team.
The Malibu City Council, staff, and the entire Malibu community is sending heartfelt condolences to Castroll’s wife, Rody, his children Victor, Lea and Rica, and all of his Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s family.
