In 1997 I worked across the street from a bank where a Garland police officer was killed. Seems the the teller had seen this suspect before and alerted the police before he started to rob the place. I went to Michael "Mad Dog" Moore memorial service that night. This incident has left me with some emptiness.

My question is: How can I found out what has happened to the suspect? On the officer down page the only thing it says is he has been sentenced to death. Most people probably call me crazy, but I want to know his name. To me knowing his name and the day he is put to death would make it a little easier. I did not know the officer, but I have police officers in my family. Is there anyway i can find out this information???

Well what you could do, but may be difficult considering the suspect's "rights", is to call the local PD. Perhaps, if you can gain their trust with the right words, they can inform you of the suspects current situation (if he is still alive). If that is no help, perhaps you can contact the city's government building (which ever one you think will work) and ask them. If you find out, let me know. If the officers in your family are from the same dept. as the officer who's life was unnecessarily taken, maybe they can find out for you.

Submit a request in writing to the Garland PD. Since there is a disposition on the case, you are entitled to the information via the open records act.

You can access all the people currently on death row and that have been executed at the TDCJ web site. It will provide basic offender info as well as a picture. Here is the link www.tdcj.state.tx.us/stat/deathrow.htm if it does not work just go to www.tdcj.state.tx.us. The first link provides all kinds of great info!!! Well better yet did a little research while typing this and found the info you were looking for here is the link to the offender page: www.tdcj.state.tx.us/stat/mosleykenneth.htm

Summary of incident
On February 15, 1997, Mosley murdered a white male police officer while attempting to rob a bank in Garland. Employees called police after noticing Mosley inside the bank acting suspicious. As one of the first officers to arrive at the scene, the victim entered the bank in full uniform and approached Mosley, noticing that the would-be bandit had his hand stuck in his waistband. When the officer told Mosley to show him his hands, a struggle ensued and the two crashed through a glass window. Witnesses heard several shots fired before Mosley re-entered the bank through the broken window and was shot in the wrist after flashing his pistol at a second police officer. The victim died the afternoon of the shooting. He suffered at least four bullet wounds to the torso.

GAULT1231, Like you, I always want to know more... As a LEO I've become quit nosy and always want to know more about situations. In this situation, what I've done in the past, is look at the states offender website. I have located many offender's and their charges, porole dates, and what facility they are being held at, among other things. You can also get the docket number and go into the court minutes to find out if they are going through appeals and so forth. Just a suggestion. I usually use this for our sex offenders in our area, who have been released. I want to know everything about them for the safety of the citizens.
