Ran into an article on the incident. Just last week. I lived in the area at the time of the shooting and remember it. George Anderson shot you. He escaped from Miami Jail. Was captured in New York by Officer Abraham Becker.
Rest in Peace

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 59th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. . My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

To The Family of Officer Fritz:
I wanted to offer my sympathies even though your senseless death took place nearly 58 years ago. Your bravery and courage will never be forgotten. I believe there is a street sign named after you in Coconut Grove. My dad was a policeman in New York City for almost 40 years. It is important to return to your family after your shift and Officer Fritz your dedication to duty should not be forgotten. Rest in peace Officer Fritz.
