White house Policeman that was killed at Blair house in 1950 while protecting President Truman. The assassins, Oscar Collazo and Griselio Torresola, were Puerto Rican nationalists. Collazo, the survivor, stood trial for first-degree murder and was given the death penalty. Later Truman commuted the sentence to life imprisonment. In 1979 Collazo was released and went back to Puerto Rico.
