He was the second LAPD officer killed in the line of duty. The first three LAPD deaths, two of which occurred in 1907 and one in 1908, are listed at http://www.ulwaf.com/LA-1900s/SpecialReports/Police/PoliceList.html.Sincerely, George Garrigues Log in to Reply nathan December 6, 2006 @ 2:55 amHow is it that Hollywood can spend fifty million a pop on a thriller, and it isn’t half as gripping as this story?
