Michael Earl Greene

Master Trooper Michael Greene was shot and killed when he stopped to question two men he observed urinating along the side of Interstate 65 in Marion County.

Master Trooper Greene learned that both men were wanted for outstanding warrants, and while handcuffing one suspect, the other suspect shot and killed him. One offender was convicted of reckless homicide and has since been released from prison. The shooter was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in 1995, but while awaiting execution, he died in prison in 2007.

Master Trooper Greene was an Indiana National Guard veteran who had served with the Indiana State Police for over 16½ years and was assigned to the Indianapolis post. Master Trooper Greene was survived by his son and daughter.

In 2008, a Memorial Mile was designated on Interstate 65 in Marion County in his honor.
