Died when vehicle exploded when he entered it after shift.  The investigation revealed that when the victim had attempted to leave the fire station upon completion of his tour of duty, a bomb installed in his 1950 Ford pickup detonated, killing the victim, damaging his pickup truck, and the fire station.  As a result of an intensive and lengthy investigation, his wife was charged and convicted of conspiracy to commit murder.
