Agent Bishop was shot and killed in his own home under suspicious circumstances. An intruder shot him seven times after breaking in at approximately 2:00 am. It is believed he was murdered as a result of his work for the State Bureau of Investigation.

In 1928 an inmate in the Minnesota State Penitentiary confessed to murdering Agent Bishop. The inmate stated that an accomplice was shot and killed during a shootout with officers in Texas.

Agent Bishop had served with the agency for 10 years and was survived by his wife, son, three brothers, two sisters, and his father. He is buried at Fairlawn Cemetery in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

I recently moved into 1515 NW 28th and have been hearing lots of footsteps and voices upstairs, almost nightly. I searched the address on google and found nothing. My boyfriend told his mother about the noises and she did an article search and came up with all of these articles about Luther Bishop! I can't believe that happened in my house 89 years ago! Please email me [email protected] if you have more history on my home.
Thank you all!
