Eighteen years ago today, my brother, Merritt, was murdered by the four Galli brothers/cousins, better known as the “Preppy Bandits.” Merritt was a cook at the Green Parrot bar in SLC. On May 17, 1992, two of the PBs attempted to rob the Green Parrot. Instead, they shot my brother in the chest when he stumbled upon them hiding in a basement storage room. The ER doc said it looked like a bomb exploded in his chest.
I miss him.
