Reflections for Patrolman Richard E. Pelkey


My dad, Stan Pelkey, was Richard's uncle... He loved Richard like a son. I was in 5th grade in summer when he was killed. I remember his wonderful and warm Pelkey smile.... Rest in peace, dear Richard.

I heard about Richard from my Grandfather Casper Clemens when I was a kid. Richard is a distant cousin of mine. I read all about this murder when I went to the New York State Police Academy for a school sponsored by the DEA. They have the weapon that was used in there museum a Winchester Rifle.
