Although I was just born in 1969, you are my brother. I came on LAPD in 1994 but I know your story because the officers that came before me, the officers that are in LAPD now, and the officers that come behind me will never let your legacy die. You will forever be engrained in our hearts and we will never give up trying to find your killer/s. Rest easy Mike. We will never forget.
