Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: IL   USA   Thu. Apr. 02, 1970
Summary: Detective William E. Loscheider, 41, gave his life on April 2, 1970.

Detective Loscheider, along with other officers, was working on a stakeout of a liquor company in the 700 block of Broadway following information from an informant. After observing three men making entry into the business, officers were given orders to move in. The suspects quickly fled after spotting the officers, one of whom was apprehended immediately. A second officer was chasing the suspects when he lost sight of them. As Detective Loscheider approached the scene with his gun drawn in the darkness, the second officer did not recognize him. The officer ordered him to drop his gun. When Detective Loscheider didn't comply, the officer fired from his shotgun, fatally wounding him.

The burglars were later apprehended, charged and convicted with murder for Detective Loscheider's death.

Detective Loscheider is survived by his wife and daughter. Since his death, the Department organized the Police Athletic League and the field at Plainfield and Wyoming was dedicated in his memory. Detective Loscheider received 17 commendations, one of which was for rescuing a girl from a fire, for which he was most proud.
