Officer Bowen was shot and killed in the line of duty while attempting to arrest a man who was waving a pistol in front of a saloon.

The suspect was sentenced to life in prison but was killed by a group of prisoners who were escaping from the Utah State Prison. Those prisoners had attempted an escape three months earlier and killed Warden Matthew B. Burgher in the process.

Officer Bowen was survived by his wife and nine children.

Oct 1873-you were killed when my grandmother was 18 months old-she lived to be 94-and now she's been gone for 44 years-so many years gone by-so much living-that you didn't get a chance to do.
My oldest daughter was born 1 month shy of 100 years of your death-
My husband was killed only 6 years ago and we as a family wept-I know your wife & children did too-It never changes-only the dates-
You were a brave soul as was my husband
I thank you for that
Bless you Officer Bowen
