He was a loving and caring man who was a great policeman for the city of Detroit. He was shot in the back. The mayor at the time, Mayor Coleman Young, conducted his own investigation and the killer never went to prison for even 1 day! Franks' father died of a broken heart.
We have all mourned for him since. (That is the rest of the story)
