The suspects were never apprehended but were identified 50 years later when a man confessed to the murder while on his deathbed.

Before joining the Newport Police Department, Officer Conniff had formerly served as the Chief of Police in Sandpoint, Idaho. He was survived by his wife and three children and is buried in Greenwood Memorial Terrance Cemetery, Spokane, Washington.

After reading the reflection left for you by Sgt. Fitzgerald, I further researched your death and was so saddened to learn of the circumstances and people behing your murder. The great majority honor the badge they wear but a few disgrace it and themselves. You were in the first category, it seems your killer was in the other.
