Town Sergeant Julian Boyer and Sheriff William Bond, of the Orange County Sheriff's Office, 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.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 90th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Your sacrifice was made so many years ago. Evil was, is, and will be a part of life just as goodness such as yours will also be present.

Rest In Peace
