Patrolman Toivola was shot and killed after responding to a domestic disturbance at a local residence. A man who was arguing with his wife opened fire with a shotgun as Patrolman Toivola entered the home.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. His execution date was suspended indefinitely when mental experts convinced the judge that he was insane. He was sent to the Lima State Mental Hospital and remained there until his death on November 3, 1965.

I am the granddaughter of Eino Toivola. I just found this site and read all the beautiful tributes to my grandfather and want to Thank Everyone. Even though I never got to meet him, the stories I have been told by many in our community has allowed me to know how great a man he was. Because of him I have become an advocate Against Domestic Violence against women. I have nothing of my grandfather's, no memorabilia or photo's, if anyone has something extra they would be willing to allow me to copy I would appreciate it greatly. You can email me at [email protected] May God keep all of our troops and officer's safe and out of harms way.
