May Peter rest in peace knowing he served with one of the greatest brotherhoods in the world that puts their all on the line each day helping others and the less fortunate. Peter was one of the best and he should be proud because he was a good cop.
I had intimate relationship with his death from an investigation stand point as I had dealings with an informant in a neighboring city regarding his death that turned out not true. I knew Peter and he was well liked by all!
