If you lived in Boston from the early 90’s on – you probably heard of the story of Boston Police Detective John Mulligan. Mulligan, 52 years old, was shot five times in the face on Sept. 26, 1993, while working a detail at a local Walgreens. Mulligan was reportedly inside his SUV, asleep, when the shooting occurred.
You also probably heard of the name Sean Ellis.
Two journalists familiar with this story and appeared in the 8-part docuseries Trial 4 – now streaming on Netflix - Boston Globe columnist Adrian Walker and Senior Investigative Reporter for WGBH-NEWS Phillip Martin - discuss the problems with the investigation, the Boston police department and will there ever be justice for Mulligan or Ellis.
