John James Mulligan

Detective John Mulligan was shot and killed while working a private detail. He was shot five times in the face, execution style, as he sat in his car.

Two suspects were tried and convicted of first-degree murder in 1995, but one suspect had his conviction overturned in 2000 when he plea bargained for manslaughter. In February 2006, the suspect admitted his participation in the execution-style killing of Detective Mulligan. He is eligible for parole in summer 2006.

Detective Mulligan had served with the agency for 27 years.
