    Unhappy Retired Philly officers murdered

    Many Mourn 2 Slain During Armored-Truck Robbery

    POSTED: 12:04 am EDT October 5, 2007
    UPDATED: 12:18 am EDT October 5, 2007

    BRISTOL TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Bringing a cake to a family in mourning is a neighborly gesture, but it can't stop the tears of a woman whose father was gunned down.


    They were a couple of retired cops who had worked in the 7th District. They both went to work for Loomis. The both lived in Bristol Township, less than a mile from each other. Sadly, they both were murdered Thursday.


    William Widmaier, 65, was actually at the ATM when the gunman appeared behind him.

    While Widmaier, who retired in 1989, was the moneyman, his partner, Joseph Allulo, 54, would have been guarding him. He, too, was taken by surprise by the assassin who made no demands. He just opened fire.


    "That's what really shocking that somebody got the drop on them. We were always confident with his skills as a police officer that it would carry him through. He would be in good hands in his hands," Mike Tufo, family friend of Allulo, said.


    Now, two families are grieving and so are many others, including Philadelphia police officers.


    "They may be retired, but we are all still brothers. Cops are cops." Frank Barclay said.


    Barclay is also a retired cop. He worked with both of Thursday's victims. You think cops retire to something safer.


    "They retired to a good job, where they’re carrying a gun and delivering a lot of money,” Barclay said.


    Somebody wanted that money enough to kill two men.


    "To take a grandfather away from a small child? We’re devastated. We really are, " said, Widmaier’s daughter, Wednesday. "I really hope they catch these people.


    After carefully examining the surveillance video, police have determined that is was a lone gunman.


    Anyone with information is asked to call police.

    I've just never been tested
    I'd like to think that if I was,
    I would pass"

    It's a shame to lose two who should be enjoying their retirement. My heart and prayers go out to the two officers families

    Saw the story on the news and had no idea either was a retired officer. My sympathies go out to their families and friends. God give them peace and comfort them in their hours of grief. St. Michael has two more guardians. RIP!
