Officer John Keegan was found with a fatal gunshot wound several hours after failing to check in with his station.

While patrolling his beat, Officer Keegan would report to the station from a patrol box every hour, confirming that all is well. Abruptly, the calls stopped coming. Hours later, Officer Keegan was found mortally wounded. His murder remains unsolved.

Officer Keegan was assigned to the West Madison Street station.
