STANLEY EDWARD COHEN, 51, was found dead inside his store 03/03/02 in Fort Worth, Texas.1
He was a 1968 graduate of Paschal High School, and owned S&S Auto Supply located at 3411 Miller Avenue.
Friend Carl recalls Stanley as “…always friendly and eager to help people in need, not thinking about the danger.” Dennis, another friend, fondly remembers him as being a “…sweetheart of a guy who always had a kind word and a smile to give.2
He is interred at Greenwood Memorial Park and Mausoleum in Fort Worth.3
At about 6:40pm Sunday, a customer found Stanley lying unresponsive in a pool of blood. He died of multiple gunshot wounds to the torso, that investigators believe was inflicted shortly after the business closed at 1:00pm.4
The store had been ransacked, and there were clear indications of a violent struggle. Stolen was a revolver, an undetermined amount of money, as well as the store’s blue Dodge Ram. The truck was later found in the parking lot of the Minyard’s Food Store at 3051 Miller Avenue.
