Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: IL   USA   Thu. Oct. 17, 1996
Summary: Patrolman Anthony Samfay was shot and killed during a traffic stop.

As Patrolman Samfay was returning to his squad car with the violator's drivers license, the suspect exited his car and shot Patrolman Samfay five times in the back. The suspect, who had no prior criminal record, was later arrested without incident after carjacking another vehicle.

The suspect was found guilty of murder and aggravated vehicular hijacking and sentenced to death. On January 11, 2003, the outgoing governor granted clemency to all 167 Illinois death row inmates as one of his last acts in office. The inmate's sentence was commuted to life without parole.

Patrolman Samfay had served with the Kankakee Police Department for one year.p
