Remember Shrewsbury Patrolman James Lonchiadis.

On this day in 1975, Shrewsbury Cop James Lonchiadis was shot and killed when he interrupted an auto theft in progress. His murder is my first memory of a cop being killed in the line of duty. I think of it every time I drive by the scene of the crime, the Worcester City Motel. Officer Lonchiadis's young son grew up to be a police officer and is currently protecting lives and preserving the peace in Shrewsbury. Read his Dad's story and honor his memory by clicking HERE
