Patrolman Charles Osborne was shot and killed after taking a juvenile home.

As Officer Osborne was checking the back seat the suspect pulled a concealed weapon from his crotch area and shot Patrolman Osborne in the head, behind his right ear. He lay in the street for 30 minutes because a witness didn't want to get involved. Another passerby noticed Patrolman Osborne and notified paramedics. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries three days later.

The suspect was arrested a short time later and sentenced to life in prison.

Patrolman Osborne was survived by his wife, daughter, and stepdaughter.

Twenty years later, we still miss you, Eddie. It's impossible to believe it has been so long since you died but it's even harder to believe that you're gone. I miss your quiet presence, your soft laugh, your keen sense of right and your determination to DO right. Even as children, we knew you were special. You left a hole in our family and we look to the day when we will all be reunited. I'm proud to have known you and loved you as my cousin.
