Fred Albrecht July 26, 1937 - April 15, 2013 Resident of Clayton Fred Albrecht, retired Clayton Police Chief, passed away from heart disease. He is survived by his loving companion, Patty, son Steve, daughters Lisa and Linda, and son-in-law Bob. He had a 31-year career in law enforcement and was an Army veteran. Most notably, Fred was honored and recognized in solving two cold case murders-in San Bernardino in the 60s, and a double murder in Grand Junction, CO in the 70s. Fred's diligence in evidence collecting made it possible for DNA matching, and the murderers are serving life sentences. A memorial service is set for May 10 in San Bernardino.
