9781410716965: The Matchbook and Other Cop Stories

The early fall thunderstorm blew in from the northwest with a sudden fury in the middle of the afternoon, not too much unlike a hurricane, dropping over two inches of rain in less than one hour. The rain was accompanied by wind and golf ball size hail so nasty that motorists were forced to pull off the road wherever they may be, on city street, alley or interstate freeway. At about the peak of the storm several motorists, who had stopped on the shoulder of Arrowhead Road to wait out the worst, noticed something on the other side of the roadside ditch in the high brown grass which had been blown over, almost flat, by the force of the torrential storm. Arrowhead Road, in the northwest corner of the city of Duluth, is a busy thoroughfare, which connects the neighborhoods of Kenwood and Duluth Heights. It also is one of the feeder routes for the nearby campuses of the University of Minnesota, Duluth, and the College of St. Scholastica. Roads spinning off to the Duluth International Airport also intersect with Arrowhead. As the storm subsided, one of the curious motorists left his car for a closer look at the object and found a quilt wrapped around what appeared to be a human body, with legs protruding from one end, wearing what appeared to be black slacks or trousers. Whether it was a young male or a small female could not be determined. 'Call the police,' he hollered to no one in particular.

About the Author:

Eli Miletich, a veteran of thirty three years service with the Duluth, Minnesota Police Department, worked in every division gaining a broad perspective of police work, and human nature with it's failures as well as successes. In the Uniform Patrol Division, he received seven Exceptional Performance Commendations for apprehending suspects involved in crimes ranging from auto theft to burglary. As a Sergeant and Officer in Charge of the Narcotics-Vice Unit, he received commendations from nine agencies, including the FBI, Justice Department and DEA, for assistance provided in their investigations. An activist, he served his fellow officers for seventeen years as President of the Duluth Police Union, the bargaining unit for all officers except the Police Chief. He also was a regional vice president of the International Union of Police Associations for ten years.Promoted to Lieutenant, he supervised the Traffic Bureau for one year, followed by the License and Training Unit for three years.Appointed Police Chief in 1982, he adapted the nation's first ever policy of Mandated Arrest for Domestic Abuse for which he was commended by the President of the United States. He was appointed to the Minnesota Police Officers Standards and Training Board by Governor Rudy Perpich serving eight years and was its chairman. He also was a Vice President of the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association. After retirement, Miletich was recruited by a friend, a retired FBI agent, to serve in Bosnia-Herzegovina with the United Nations International Police Task Force to train and monitor police in that war torn nation. He served one year in a sometimes-hectic environment, the native land of his parents. He and his wife, Carol, are parents of three children, with six grandchildren.He is presently working on a story of his experiences in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
