Hollywood Intersection Dedicated To 'Onion Field' Murdered LAPD Officer
Corina Knoll at the Los Angeles Times offers a piece on the dedication to the late LAPD officer Ian Campbell.
The officer was murdered in an onion field and the story was told by former LAPD Detective Joseph Wambaugh in his classic true crime book The Onion Field.
Wambaugh later made a fine film from his book, also called The Onion Field, which starred Ted Danson in his first film role as Ian Campbell.
