Eddie Mundo, Jr.

Officer Eddie Mundo was killed when his patrol car was struck head-on by a vehicle he was searching for.

The driver of the vehicle, who was under the influence of alcohol and narcotics, had assaulted his wife and fled the scene before officers arrived. Officer Mundo had begun searching for the suspect and had driven approximately one mile outside of the city limits on Jericho Road. He turned his patrol car around and was heading back towards the center of town, when the suspect's vehicle came around a sharp bend at a high rate of speed and struck the patrol car.

The driver fled the scene of the accident but turned himself in several hours later at a nearby house. In July 2004 the suspect pleaded guilty to manslaughter, wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, and DUI. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Officer Mundo had also served as a U.S. Marine Corps military police officer for four years, and as a deputy for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. He is survived by his wife and one-year-old son, and his parents, Luisa and Eddie, Sr.

I miss you brother. You were my best friend and helped me in more ways than one when I needed it. I think of how you touched so many and am thankful everyday you touched mine. I retired from lmpd last August and am working for mpd now. I remember the goals we had and wonder what it would look like with you still here, my guess is we both would be working together at some small dept. doing our old “john and ponch” ways or maybe just enjoying retirement hanging by my pool with our wives and kiddos. I hope that I honor your legacy as best I can. Love and miss you bro!!
