Sheriff Willie Bond and Town Sergeant Julian Boyer, of the Town of Orange Police Department, were shot and killed while attempting to arrest a man for operating a still. The two had set off from the courthouse at 1500 hours in a local taxi cab. When they arrived on the scene they told the driver to wait. After several hours the driver stopped waiting for them and returned to the town to report that they were missing.

Several officers and citizens set out the next morning and found Sheriff Bond with a gunshot wound through the heart and Town Sergeant Boyer's body riddled with bullets. The posse tracked to a nearby barn, which they set on fire, killing the suspect.

I just picked up two antique tintype photos of this fallen hero. They and his story how he was killed by a bootlegger in the course of his job will be forever passed down in my family. I thank Sherriff Bond for his historical, heroic service to our country.
