I will look further but I thought this happened in June of 1944 maybe not! My Aunt Lourdine Livermore was sitting next to the perps girlfriend, she took a .45 to the chest. the story I got was that the army Lt. did not want to go back to the war. what a waste!!

You were serving your community when your life was taken by a cowardly criminal act. Your service honors your family, your community, your profession, colleagues in the Riverside Police Department and throughout the greater law enforcement community.

Now the community of Riverside, and your department, must deal with another cowardly criminal act resulting in the loss of one Riverside Officer and the serious wounding of another. My thoughts and prayers are with these most recent victims, their families and friends, the department and the community.

Continue to Rest in Peace - and welcome another Riverside hero into the next Life.
