Assistant City Marshal Thomas Moad was killed when he attempted to quiet some drunken cowboys creating a disturbance at the Manison House, a local brothel. Moad's killer, 25 year old Howard H. Doughty, escaped to Mexico, but was subsequently captured.

Moad was the first El Paso police officer to die in the line of duty. He had served as a private in Company C of the Frontier Nattaloin of the Texas Rangers before joining the El Paso Police Department. His last name has previously been incorrectly reported as "Mode."

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and twenty-seventh 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 who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
