Officer Gary Bevel was shot six times and killed as he attempted to arrest a woman who had made a false report about damage to her car.

The suspect was sentenced to death in four separate trials, but each sentence was overturned by the Florida Supreme Court and her sentence was subsequently commuted to life in prison with the eligibility of parole. In February 2007 her parole request was denied. Her parole was denied again in 2011.

There's a social website called Facebook, you would not know about it....lolol..everybody has been posting the statement I'm so...mine is I'm so Duval..just so happen I asked one of the girls if she still lived there in 1983 when this happen, I said he was my friend. She said he was my friend too. My sister thought your killer was released so I had to google it and up came this page. I commented back in 2005 and here it is 2014 9 years later and it still brings tears to my eyes.
