One suspect shot him when he found the money they took during a search of their car. Both were apprehended a mile from the scene by several state troopers. Both were jailed for murder.

Trooper Parks had served with the Florida Highway Patrol for 6 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters (the second born posthumously).
