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.

Today marks the 22nd anniversary of your horrible murder by cowardly filth who God willing will face TRUE justice, if not in this life, in the next.

May your rest be eternally peaceful and God bless you, Brother.
