Carl T. Wilder

Trooper Wilder was shot and killed during a traffic stop on Tuxedo-Greenwood Lake Highway in the Village of Tuxedo. No suspects were ever identified. Trooper Wilder was unable to reply to inquiries regarding his assailant before he died. The necktie he was clutching in his hand when he was found, apparently torn from the neck of his assailant, provided no clue to the murderer. It was theorized that Trooper Wilder might have been killed by bootleggers operating in the area.
