Agent Robert Larson was shot and killed after an undercover narcotics purchase went bad. After Agent Larson got into the suspect's vehicle they drove away. Agent Larson's backup officers lost track of the vehicle as a result. Agent Larson's body was found in a motel room a short time later with three bullet wounds. The drug dealer intended to rob Agent Larson instead of selling him drugs. The suspect and an accomplice were apprehended a short time later.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Agent Larson was a U.S. Army veteran and had been in law enforcement for over ten years. He was survived by his daughter and father.

34 years later... I woke at 3AM to get up and see if the internet mentioned my best friend and there you are. I have really missed you and although I although I am now an ornery old man and many years have passed since we loved life together, tears still fall when I seen your picture. There is so much I would like to say, but won't.
