Murderer Never Found

Book of Lists, #2, p. 69

In the early morning hours of March 16, 1971, an enlisted man at the U.S. Army base in Bienhoa, Vietnam, cut a hole through the screen covering a window in the officers' quarters and threw a fragmentation grenade inside. Two lieutenants&md;Richard Harlan and Thomas Dellwo&md;were killed. Pvt. Billy Dean Smith was arrested and court-martialed for the crime but later was declared innocent. The real murderer was never found.
