Case Number: 73-12668

The Victim:  Francis “Frank” S. Conroy, 28 years old

The Crime:  On Friday, September 7, 1973, at 8:30 PM, an adult male suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the chest was found laying next to his blue 1972 Dodge pickup truck in the newly constructed rear parking lot of St. Francis Hospital at 700 E. Colorado Avenue.  He was immediately taken into the nearby Emergency Room, where he was pronounced dead.  The victim, Francis “Frank” Conroy, was missing his wallet, and was presumed to be the victim of a robbery. 

Mr. Conroy had been working as a civilian computer operator at Fort Carson, and lived alone in an apartment on Carmel Drive.  Investigators interviewed numerous acquaintences of victim, but did not discover any obvious motive related to his business or personal relationships.  Several years after the crime, two purported witnesses identified a local man as the suspect in this case, stating that the shooting occurred during a random robbery attempt.  Investigators were unable to conclusively corroborate this information, and the suspect could not be prosecuted at that time.  No new suspects have as of yet been identified, and the case remains open.

The Colorado Springs Police Department Homicide Cold Case Unit is currently responsible for approximately 90 unsolved homicide cases dating back to 1949. CSPD considers a case to be cold if it remains unsolved for more than one year.
