CGPD Remembers…

Patrolman Donald Henry Crittendon, age 24, died March 21, 1961, of gunshot wounds he received in a gun battle on March 10, 1961 while on-duty. Patrolman Crittendon had resigned from the Department and was working his last shift, being shot a mere 90 minutes before his shift ended. Patrolman Crittendon was the fifth uniformed member of the Cape Girardeau Police Department to be killed in the line-of-duty.

Officers had responded to a call of two men loitering near Kroger in Town Plaza. Soon after, several officers became engaged in a vehicle pursuit with the male subjects. Patrolman Crittendon and Auxiliary Sergeant Herbert Goss also responded to the area.

The vehicle pursuit came to a halt near the entrance of Arena Park on Kingshighway, and gunfire ensued. Patrolman Crittenden was shot in the abdomen as he walked to the passenger’s side of the vehicle. Officer Crittenden died from his wounds at Southeast Missouri Hospital eleven days later. Auxiliary Sergeant Goss was shot and killed as he approached the driver’s side window of the suspect vehicle.

It was learned that the two male subjects had escaped from a jail in San Luis Obispo, California on February 28, 1961. A third escapee was with them however, he was left behind at Kroger in Town Plaza. Before reaching Missouri, the men robbed a supermarket and a liquor store in New Mexico and Kansas.

After the shootout with officers, the pair stole a car from a group of college students from Southeast Missouri State College. Later, they assaulted a farmer in Glen Allen, Missouri, and took his car. More gunfire was exchanged between them and a State Trooper before they managed to again elude capture.

The next day State troopers arrested one of the suspects in a wooded area near Grassy, Missouri. He had received gunshot wounds to both legs and an arm as a result from the exchange of gunfire the day prior. The second suspect was arrested weeks later near Poplar Bluff, Missouri.

One of the suspects was convicted in July 1961 of murder and given the death penalty. He was executed in the gas chamber on July 26, 1963 at the Missouri State Penitentiary. The other suspect was tried for the murder of our two officers a total of three times. Convictions in Bollinger County and Mississippi County were both overturned, and he was convicted again in 1984 by a Scott County jury. The third conviction resulted in a life sentence however he was paroled in 1987.

Donald H. Crittendon was born on April 14, 1936 in Piggott, Arkansas. He graduated from Kennett High School where he had starred in football and track for four years. He attended State College in Cape Girardeau for a term before entering the U.S. Navy in 1955. While stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii, he and Roceda Joyce Lillard, of Senath, were married on August 30, 1958. Following his discharge from the service on September 5, 1957, he again entered State College and enrolled in courses.

Prior to joining the Cape Girardeau Police Department in September, 1959, he worked at Davis Electric Co. He served the Missouri State Highway Patrol as a driver-examiner and served as a deputy to Juvenile Officer Jay Nations.

Survivors at the time of his death included his wife, Mrs. Roceda Crittendon, and two daughters, Jeri Dawn and Teri Lynn, of the home; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Elza H. Crittendon, of Kennett; two brothers, Jack and Ronald Crittendon, of Kennett; three sisters, Mrs. Max Hostetler of West Memphis, Arkansas, Mrs. John Higgins, of Cape Girardeau, and Kay Crittendon, of Kennett; maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. S.H. Bradshaw, and paternal grandmother, Mrs. Nora Crittendon, all of Kennett.
Burial was in Memorial Park in Cape Girardeau.

The Southeast Missourian commemorated the 50th anniversary of this fatal shooting in 2011. To read more about the incident, click the link below.

Today, we honor the ultimate sacrifice given by Patrolman Crittendon to the City of Cape Girardeau 57 years ago. He gave service before self and honor above all. #HeroesLiveForever #WeWillNeverForget
