Amanda Olcott (14845)

2/11/2002: Trooper Lawrence P. Gleason arrived at the rural Crown Point home where Amanda Olcott was staying. Olcott had earlier called police to say her ex-boyfriend had threatened her with a knife and then left the residence. Gleason was interviewing Olcott in her kitchen when James Scharpf returned to the home and fired three or more shots from a high-powered rifle from outside the house. Despite the fact that the trooper was wearing a standard-issue bulletproof vest, the shots inflicted from the 30-30 hunting rifle caused "massive" body wounds and he was killed instantly, police said. Scharpf then went into the house and killed Olcott before killing himself with another shot.
