God Bless You Officer McLain. As a fellow Malden resident and lived near you and was a paper boy on your home, 55 Echo St. Malden, Ma. I am deeply saddened.

I am doing research on this terrible act and I'm having trouble trying to find out the name of the perp and where he lived etc. Also trying to find out where in Malden this occurred.

Any help is appreciated.
Thank You

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 77th 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.

Rest In Peace

Officer McLain,
On today, the 73rd anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Malden. It's good that back then, the Massachusetts legal system was able to take care of cop killers the way they should be taken care of.

Officer McLain, today marks the 72nd anniversary of your murder. You served the City of Malden for 30 years and should have been given the chance to finally get a nice retirement that you so richly deserved. Instead, some loser felt that killing you was the preferred option. It wasn’t and turned out not to be such a bright idea for him either.

A guy of any age took a chance, but to jump on a running board and ride somewhere at age 65 showed real guts. You must have been, and no doubt, still are, a tough old bird. I admire and respect your memory.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

From a fellow holder of badge #1.
