    This is an old case that some might recall. My recollection is the perp was riding in the back of a patrol car, rear cuffed and restrained when he tried to escape and was shot once in the head, killing him and saving the taxpayers of New York a fortune. Here is a brief synopsis I found online...."On the evening of February 24, 1985, Westchester County police officer Gary Stymiloski notified headquarters that he was making a routine traffic stop in Yonkers, New York. Moments later, after spotting shotgun shells in the car, Stymiloski radioed for support. Reinforcements arrived in time to find him dying, in his cruiser, with a single bullet in his brain. The suspect vehicle was found abandoned in the Bronx and traced to Alex Mengel, age 30, an immigrant from Guyana who entered the United States in November 1976. A tool and die maker by trade, Mengel had logged one arrest - for assaulting his ex-wife - in 1984. Investigators learned that Mengel was returning from a weekend's shooting in the Catskills, traveling with friends, when Stymiloski flagged him down for speeding. Two of his companions, held in custody as material witnesses, agreed that the shooting was senseless and unprovoked, leading to issuance of a murder warrant on February 27. Three days later, in Toronto, local officers spotted Mengel outside a shopping mall. The fugitive crashed his car into a wall while trying to escape, then swerved into a dead-end street where he was cornered and arrested. The stolen vehicle was registered to Beverly Capone, an IBM computer programmer reported missing by her family, in Mount Vernon, New York, on February 26. Two pistols and a woman's scalp were found inside the car; ballistics tests established that one of the guns had been used to kill Officer Stymiloski in Yonkers. On March 4, while Mengel fought extradition from Canada, New York state police found items belonging to Beverly Capone in a Catskills summer cabin near Durham. Eleven days later, the woman's remains were discovered in heavy woods a half-mile from the cabin; she had been stabbed once in the chest, her scalp and the skin of her face sliced away by her killer. Tissue samples from the body made a positive match with the scalp recovered from Capone's car in Toronto. With the new evidence in hand, authorities linked Mengel with the attempted abduction of a 13-year-old girl in Skaneateles, New York, southwest of Syracuse, on February 27. The child was delivering papers when a stranger, wearing lipstick and an ill-fitting wig, tried to snatch her off the street. Escaping without injury, she agreed with detectives that the "wig" might just as well have been a woman's scalp. On March 26, Canadian authorities ordered Mengel's deportation to New York as an illegal alien with insufficient money to support himself. Two days later, a grand jury in Westchester County indicted Mengel for first-degree murder in the slaying of Officer Stymiloski. Greene County followed suit on April 8, charging the prisoner with second-degree murder in the case of Beverly Capone. On April 26, returning under guard from his arraignment in Greene County, Mengel tried to escape from his state police escort on the Taconic State Parkway. Undaunted by handcuffs and chains, he grappled with one guard, seizing the officer's sidearm, and was killed by the driver before he could squeeze off a shot. "

    Note to self;

    1) Fire the death shot from a distance.

    2) Take handcuffs off corpse.

    3) Discard videotape.

There was a witness, it was the dash cam that recorded the suspect cuffed, then he is out of sight laying on the ground, and then you can hear the one shot. That is how the state police made the case. Car video. Pretty damaging. He pled as the feds were going to charge him with civil rights violations, so this is a better deal. He will probably get probation.

    We have this little thing at our station called a degauser....just wave your tape over it at the start of your shift as we recycle tapes after 30 days if not needed. Sounds like this officer needed one of those!

    Should never have plead. The suspect died as a result of close combat exchange of gunfire. After he was shot the Deputy handcuffed him according to SOP. No witnesses, no crime. I'm not saying that if he cuffed him and then shot him in cold blood he was right but I don't 'know' that he did that. I 'do' know he killed one Officer and wounded another and was killed by returned fire. At the very least I can imagine temporary insanity being so distraught over losing his partner he did not know right from wrong at that point. No matter what, it is tragic that two Officers have lost everything over it.

    They may be saving temporary insanity for the sentencing phase.

    See stans post below yours.

    He should have went to trial and claimed temporary insanity rather than the plea deal. Juries are fickle as we all know and he may have gotten off alot lighter.

    ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) -- An Otero County sheriff's sergeant accused of shooting a man who killed his partner moments before pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of voluntary manslaughter.

    Billy Anders, a 33-year law enforcement veteran, entered his plea before state District Judge James W. Counts. The charge carries a firearm enhancement.

    Counts did not immediately set a sentencing date. A plea agreement calls for a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.

    An Otero County grand jury in March indicted Anders in the death last Dec. 18 of Earl Flippen.

    Anders and fellow Deputy Robert Hedman had responded to reports of shots fired at a home Flippen rented near Cloudcroft.

    Flippen refused to let them in, and Hedman went to the back door. Anders called for backup.

    Flippen killed Hedman with a single gunshot to the head, an autopsy report said.

    Flippen then came around the side of the house, exchanged gunfire with Anders and was shot.

    Authorities later discovered that Flippen had fatally shot his pregnant girlfriend.

    Prosecutors had alleged Flippen was hit by a bullet and was incapacitated, had been handcuffed, and was not a threat to the officer or anyone else when he was shot again.

    A medical examiner's report said Flippen's body arrived for an autopsy with his hands cuffed behind his back. His pockets contained seven unfired bullets.

    A gunshot wound to the right side of Flippen's chest was surrounded by ''gunpowder stippling'' a gunpowder burn indicative of a close-range shot, the autopsy report said.

    The medical examiner said the chest wound perforated the heart and both lungs and resulted in ''significant internal bleeding.'' Another bullet wound in the head lacerated the brain and lodged behind the left eye.

    Flippen also sustained wounds to his left hand and left upper arm.

    An autopsy report on Hedman said he died instantly from a gunshot wound to the head fired from a distance. The report labeled his death a homicide.
