Fatal Incident Summary

Location: CA   USA   Mon. Jul. 22, 1957
Summary: Officers Richard Phillips and Milton Curtis were shot and killed after stopping a vehicle for running a red light.

Unbeknownst to the officers, the suspect had just raped a teenage girl after holding two couples at gunpoint. Both officers were shot and killed while they were writing a ticket.

On January 29, 2003, 45 years after the murders, the 70 year old suspect was arrested at his home in Columbia, South Carolina, as the result of a new FBI fingerprint database. The fingerprints were matched to a 1956 South Carolina burglary and linked to the suspect.

The suspect was convicted of both murders on March 24, 2003, and sentenced to life in prison. He was denied parole in 2009. He will be eligible for parole again in 2017. So he can be near his near his family, he is serving his sentence in the South Carolina Penitentiary.

Officer Phillips had been employed with the El Segundo Police Department for two years.
