My name is Gary McAdam. I was a patrol officer 1969-1971 in Kingman Kansas. Max Kilmer served along side me with Chief of Police. Capt Larry Berry joined the Kingman Police department after I transferred to Great Bend Police Department. I did not know Capt Berry other then how young he and his family was. Just like the Marines; Once a Marine always remain a Marine. Police officers; also Once an Officer always remains and officer. I wish they could have prosecuted the killer who all think did it however without evidence God will convict that individual. In my eyes and heart Capt Larry Berry is and always will be a hero to me.
