Officer Victor Estefan was shot and killed after making a traffic stop. As he approached the vehicle to get the driver's information he was shot and killed.

The suspects, who were brothers, were arrested in California after a shootout with the California Highway Patrol during a nationwide manhunt.

Both suspects were convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. In 1997 the Florida Supreme Court overturned their convictions stating they had not received a fair trial. In March 2013, a jury declared a mistrial for the alleged gunman, and the suspect is still being held awaiting another trial. The brothers are serving life sentences for attempted murder of the CHP officers in southern California.

Officer Estefan was survived by his wife, son, daughter, and grandson.

Godfather,
I remember thats what a lot of the guys called you!
You were always joking around,and you made me laugh so much.
I remember when you would turn your windshield water sprayers,to the right and ride through the transfer point and spray the guys,including me!
When ever I had a traffic related question,I always knew who to have QSY, for the answer !
God bless you Victor,and rest in peace brother.
