DEPARTMENT:

San Antonio Police Department

END OF WATCH:

Friday, December 13, 1985
Deputy Chief of Police John Frisco was dragged to death while attempting to question a man in a pickup truck. Deputy Chief Frisco was working a uniformed, off-duty security detail at a dance when he observed several suspicious men in the parking lot. As he attempted to question one of the men the suspect drove away. Deputy Chief Frisco held onto the truck as it reached 60-mph. The driver began to swerve and Deputy Chief Frisco was thrown to the ground in front of Roosevelt High School. The suspect remained at large for almost 20 years. The man was apprehended in 2001 after a suspect in a drug case gave San Antonio detectives information about his location. The man plead guilty and on April 28th, 2003, was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
