Officer Murray Olsen was shot and killed when he interrupted a burglary in progress at Olive View Medical Center.

He encountered several subjects stealing radioactive x-ray equipment. As he confronted one of the subjects he was attacked from behind by a second man. One of the men took his service revolver and then shot him in the chest three times. The subjects then drove over top of his body as they fled the scene.

Officers with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services were considered state peace officers. The agency was later absorbed into the Los Angeles County Safety Police.

A vicious and disgusting crime. It is not listed here if the scum who murdered you in such a horrible way were ever caught, but with hopefully, they faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next. With luck, radiation poisoning.

Brother, God Bless and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.
