Albert "Bert" Reeves (6041)

5/16/2011: Former mayor Reeves and a frequently-fired local police officer (8 jobs in 11 years), both apparently with strong personalities, were headed for a small-town confrontation. The officer blocked in Reeves on a dirt road without calling in a traffic stop and left him dead of gunshot wounds. The case has caused continuing controversy and lawsuits. In October 2015 a jury awarded Reeves' family $97.5M.
