Patrolman Joseph Quigley was shot and killed after surprising two men stealing gasoline from a car.
He had just completed his rounds and had been picked up by two other officers to be driven home when they spotted the men. Patrolman Quigley jumped out of the police car and gave chase. He then jumped into the back seat of the suspects' car as it sped away. The suspects inside shot him several times and then left his body at 23rd and Monroe Streets. Patrolman Quigley had been employed with the Ogden Police Department for four years, and is survived by his expectant wife and four children.
