When Peter J. Bassett stepped outside of Judy’s Bar and Grill to get some air, he had no idea that this would be his last moment. Within minutes, an unknown person pulled the trigger on a gun, shooting and killing Peter in cold blood in the middle of downtown Bangor, Maine on a Saturday night.
Who would shoot this man? And how could somebody get away with something like this? Surely there were witnesses... Surely the family had answers...
But they don’t. And this 1988 unlisted Maine cold case remains open and unsolved, and a killer remains on the loose.
