Patrolman Peters died from carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of a defective patrol car. Patrolman Peters was staking out an illegal dump site and, when he failed to report in, other officers found his body in the patrol car.

Another officer who was using the patrol car several days earlier was in the hospital as a result of carbon monoxide after being exposed to it as well. Although the officer was hospitalized the car was never ordered to be serviced and was reassigned to Patrolman Peters.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
