A local cop everyone in this community knew and loved. A known prankster in his department. Everyone called him Tommy. He showed everyone he came in contact with respect and compassion regardless of the circumstances. On this night Tommy responded with his partner to do a welfare check to check on a suicidal subject. Minutes after going out on scene, Tommy was shot and killed outside Winner’s Bar in Cold Spring Minnesota. The hunt for his killer went on for months and when the case was finally closed, it left locals with more questions than answers, and a wife and 4 children without their husband, father, and hero. You'll find several photos from this case on our website at www.officerdownmemorialpodcast.com
