On Dec 18th, 2004 Deputy Robert Hedman and his partner Sgt Billy Anders, were both working for the Otero County Sheriff’s Dept in New Mexico when they responded to a call of a shooting. When it was over, a violent armed felon/ex convict, Earl Flippen murdered Deputy Robert Hedman and a woman. Sergeant Anders survived the encounter but is in prison today for killing Flippen.
CNN reporter Dan Simon interviewed Billy Anders in prison and reports this heartbreaking story. See the video here: http://us.video.aol.com/video.index.adp?mode=2&guideContext=65.72&pmmsid=1645558
