In this episode, I collaborate with Dr. Shiloh–a forensic psychologist, podcast host of L.A. Not So Confidential, and San Dimas native–to share the story and honor the memory of Constable W.E. Funkhouser, an old-time San Dimas hero. Constable Funkhouser gave his life while attempting to apprehend a burglar along the Santa Fe railroad in 1922. Join us as we uncover this interesting piece of San Dimas history.
Listen below as I read the full newspaper article “Mexican Desperado Resisting Arrest Fatally Shoots Officer” from the San Dimas Press, May 18, 1922.
